||Help me on osciloscope usage, please|
I'm planing (well, it's actually decided. Oh my God!) to get an osciloscope and a signal generator that an old friend is selling me cheap.
Where could I find online info on breaking me into it's usage? Mainly, tube amp oriented info if possible, but some tips on using it for general repairing electronic equipment will also be appreciated.
The basics... just to begin using it.
Thank's a lot.

Go to www.tek.com or http://www.tek.com/Measurement/cgi-bin/framed.pl?Document=/Measurement/App_Notes/indexes/oscilloscopes.html&FrameSet=oscilloscopes
for a free 32 page book on how to use an oscilloscope.
Go to your local library and check out books on using oscilloscopes or how to repair electronics books with a chapter on how to use an oscilloscope. If your library doesn't have these books ask the librarian about interlibrary loans. If ILLs are not possible use the used book web sites to search for used books on oscilloscopes.
Start experimenting with your scope. STAY AWAY from large voltages until you understand how the AC/DC modes work and the need to charge the blocking capacitor in the scope.

Well, I thought I knew how to use my scope - what's this about charging
the blocking cap? I'm assuming this has something to do with the DC
blocking cap for AC mode?
