I just won two Tek RM503s on EBay, one for my 8/S and one for the 8I. Talk
about old.... I have never worked on scopes this old... Hope I can get them
up and running to play spacewars soon. These were the original scopes used
in the LAB-8.. and now I find out (contrary to quite a few things in the
PDP-8 FAQ) they were also used as the oscilloscope on the 34D interface.

How is your 8/e restoration going?
