Hello Pico Forum!

Postby Dundeeguy » Thu Apr 11, 2013 1:31 pm

Hi

Just another new member to nip peoples heads!

We have just purchased the 4 channel advanced kit, with the hope of gaining a better fix rate by confirming our suspicions with suspected faults etc.

Only had a little play with it, and had mixed results, usually mainly bad at the moment :?

However, I am booked up for a 2 day course with Matt Williams at the end of April in Glasgow. So hopefully things will make more sense after that :D

So, any members that are here going on the same course, give me a shout :)

Hi Neil,

Good to know I won't be the only one there! I think Matt said there would be about 7 or 8 people going.

I don't know if you have ever been up to Kingsway MOT Centre before, if not, its well equipped, clean and tidy workshop with a nice big flat screen to run the scope through :)

Cya Saturday!

Are you taking anything with you, i.e laptop with some of the waveforms you have captured?

I won't have anything with me.

The scope has hardly been used, and when it has been, have ended up not quite getting results I would expect! :?

To be fair though, we have been very busy, so never managed to give the scope the time it deserves

Hopefully come next week I will be using it with confidence, I hope :)

Cheers,

Kevin

Hi,

Yeah think i will be the same aswell, understanding timebase and sample rate set up is what let's me down but i'm sure after the weekend it will all make sense.

See you on saturday!

Thanks Neil

I did the two day course with Matt last year and think all of you will enjoy and benefit from what he has to say.

Hi Wally,

You were right, the course was great and pretty easy to understand.

I no longer use the automotive presets when using the scope, and just set it up manually. Seems like the 'mist' has lifted quite a bit on the use of the scope.

Matt, if your reading, thanks a million :)

Kevin.
