I too have a secret desire for an oscillascope. I'm building a wee one from a kit just now but that's mostly for fun. I'll need one that can handle 25MHz clock signals for troubleshooting my poorly Amiga 3000, hence my interest in this show.

Also, the HPR robot calls you nibble too! :D

A chimp by another name...

Yea, the Espeak kind of butchers my nick. I bet 'En Why Bill' would sound about right. Hey Espeak, I live in New York! ;)

Good luck your scope build. 25mhz will be right in the wheel house of the kit type scopes.
