Assuming it's working correctly, of course. HP 8558B spectrum analyzer.

I am not familiar with that particular piece, Carl. In looking around, the price appears to be good, but you will also need a mainframe to plug them in to for power etc. Fred would probably know which ones would work for you, and what would be an acceptable price. I wish I could be more help.

That one looks complete - I think you could run it as-is, unlike the 140 or similar units.

For the price you could probably re-list it on eBay if needed and recoup expenses should the unit not be what you're after.

Eddie, a quick Google search seems to indicate that this is a stand-alone setup.

Thanks, guys. I might pick this thing up.

I stand erected, as usual. If you get it, I hope it's a keeper for you.

You might look for some test equipment to test it.

Speaking of the Testi-Bros.........

It is way hard to believe Christy Brinkley is 60.. Billy Joel didn't age this well. Can you say terrific plastic surgeon?

And she still won't go out with me.

Her hands give her age away, much like Olivia Newton John.

You may be right. I'll let you know when I get that far down.

Good to 1500 MHz, probably a great deal. $150 is cheap!

Brinkley's cost per hour to maintain?

She should increase the budget for:
A) Hand make up
B) A plastic surgeon that does laser restoration
C) A pair of pants with pockets
D) Marry Eddie and admit her life has passed her by

D) Marry Eddie and admit her life has passed her by

A) As long as her palms are soft, who cares?
B) She's doing pretty good, whatever it is.
C) She can have a pair of mine, but all of the pockets have been cut out.
D) I'd settle for bazoom buddies. After all, look at em.

I'm really surprised by the number of CL ads involving older test equipment which surface...but a little disheartened when a great deal appears and the seller insists on local pickup only. Case in point: A Tek 7603 + 7D20 digitizer, in the Chicago area. $60 got it, but the guy refused to ship. :wall:

I get a laugh at the AM Phone classifieds sometimes. Nobody will ship anything.

OK, I get that everything weighs a little less than an asteroid, but I used to do LTL shipping all the time. If the buyer wants to pay for palletizing, no problem.

Sometimes I get the feeling that's code for "I can't get it out of my basement anymore".

The reason you guys don't get all the hot young women is because they are all chasing after me. After all, I am a musician and women dig musicians.:yes:
