Looking for a digital storage oscilloscope
Saw the HANTEK DSO05102P at Banggood  with good review
100MHz  or as some review said factory unlocked 2nS 
212€ free shipping !
it arrived in about one week from China very quick.

Some reviews showed a damaged package  missing parts
It is always a bit of a gamble how it will arrive.
My package was bounced but wrapped in plastic no lost parts.
No import fee this time also a bit of a gamble.
Power on, display came up it seemed okay .
But the 1kHz 5V test signal  did not display for both channels
Just a straight line with quantification noise and some spikes when turning the V/dev knobs
Had email exchange after a few days problem solved.
A loose ribbon connection due to transport ? the pre-amp had no 5V supply.
Sending back is no option and there is no EU agent as far as I know
Hantek treated me generous with a refund to compensate repair costs.
But repairing equipment in The Netherlands/EU the official way,
can easily exceed the purchase prize due extreme tax load on everything.
Looks well build internal with metal shielding
After fixing this i was lucky to have  the 1kHz test signal displayed.

The performance is very good and high value for €.
Bright 800x480 display   2nS /dev  1mV/Dev
Easy to operate light weight.
Small footprint on the desktop  w32x  deep 12cm.

                                                  just a straight line  no V-amplifier

                                           left 6-p connector was the failure

Dus nu een gratis scoop? 73, Bas

40€ retour ook nadat ik netjes gemeld had dat de fout hersteld was.
Laten repareren voor 40€ is geen optie

maar toch risico er is geen garantie

SPF5189z Low noise preamp 23cm

14-4-2018 updated

Above the low noise  preamp 50 - 4GHz    ebay  6€

Tested  2 small porto antennas
1 Baofeng UV antenna left   2nd best signal on PI2NOS
2 eBay DIAMONDSRH805S  wide band 144/432/1200  it works for its size as expected
3 piece of wire :   best signal in the setup...

Unit under test at workbench.
It was stable  50mA  at 5V   few days,  but sudden the current went up to 100mA
And i could  no longer adjust it with the negative bias Voltage.
The - Voltage went to zero and the SPF input port became low Z.
This SPF5189z was broken  no oscillations, no input overload just it broke while i was receiving the PI2NOS 430.125 using a small antenna at the workbench.

The specs of  SPF5189z  say it has an internal circuit  regulating the bias current.
Replaced . again   with an other of the 5 spare SPF i have.
The new one again could be adjusted at 50mA  5V 
The current raises to 150mA  when removing the  negative gate voltage.
Where is that internal bias circuit ?
I suspect  eBay …

2011-01-22 DIAMOND X30 2m 70cm 1m30 Colinear inside

Having relative poor signals on the local 70cm / 2m channels using this Diamond collinear 70/2 combi antenna at a height of 25m. I needed to investigate what could be wrong.
Measuring the cable only 3W is left for the antenna of the 10W 435MHz output from a IC451E
The cable is 30m type H100 Z50 10mm outside diameter it is semi air-spaced but has an impossible 4mm² solid CU inner conductor not much air left. I preferred the H43 Z75 cable having lower loss and mechanical better ratio in conductor size but it is no longer selling i think. This H43
3W should be enough for a comfortable noise free FM signal. But only 27km away at PA0A the signal is weak too weak something must be wrong? I made a simple reference dipole of 2x17cm CU wire.
With this dipole the signals where totally worse. So the Diamond does work?
I got curious to look inside. Maybe moisture penetration degraded the antenna.
This  antenna is rainwater close in its normal vertical mounting position. But take care if your mast can b…
