Er... I gave up after the third page of schematics...

Mainly the Storage and Delay Sweep functions. My old Gould OS1100A had a
single "Delay" control that adjusted the delay. This Tek seems to have two
triggers and the Delay Sweep control is in the "Trigger B" section. And
there's no obvious way to use it...
As for the storage section, I've worked out how to reset the storage tube
(push "RESET"), get the thing into Variable Persistence mode and that the
FAST storage function will only work in the uS range... The SAVE button is a
real pain in the neck to work out.
