    Hey newbie here. I'm buying a 30 mhz oscope. Just trying to figure out if 100mhz probes would be fine or do I need probes closer to the 30 mhz bandwidth? I cant seem to find a direct answer in my researching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    100MHZ is fine although overkill.

    I just found some 30 mhz probes. I was looking 10 x probes. When I took 10x out of my search alot more popped up. Before I was mainly seeing 100mhz probes. Thank you for the advice.

    Good quality and even color coded for us hacks that have dual, dual trace oscilloscopes, dual frequency counters, audio and RF frequency generators as well as a service monitor. 9+ probes hanging around ....

    i have a couple of sets of the probes that tallman posted.
    they work fine, but i found the hook too fat for some jobs.

    So I ordered a Ez Os 5030 with a 1mhz function generator. Can I use the function generator to input audio into my radio for alignment or do I still need a audio generator.

    You need a B&K 1040 and a 2040 to do alignments. This is only an example of tools you need. Frequency counter, oscilloscope, and a Digital Volt Ohm meter.

    The intensity is not that high on the oscope just the way it looks in the pic.
