    Dual channel and 30mhz/minimum rated. Best to get a 100mhz, since they cost about the same used. A good brand, such as Tektronix or Hitachi. Plenty of 60-100mhz Tektronix scopes on Ebay for around $100/shipping not included.

    I agree with Robb. The Techtronix scopes are really good. Stay CRT and make sure they have the little red knob in the middle of the volts. I have a digital that works just fine just weird to look at. Way easier to set your carrier and then modulation on the CRT. You will need some type of signal generator and a way to insert it to the rx side and tx side of the radio. You will also need a VTTM or another reliable device with an RF probe if you are looking to actually align a radio. 73's

    I have three spectrum analyzers all tektronix, two oscillosopes same brand.
    One Nicolet digital storage scope and one B&K which is my primary scope.
    The tektronix scopes are for special projects. Both have the differential scope probe module.
    None of them are for sale.
