Thanks much for the manual scan. Excellent job, and great resolution!

I forwarded your announcement to a friend at Agilent and he says he's sent 
your scan to be put out on the web. (Note, this typically take some time to 
go through their process; so don't expect it to show up immediately on their 
web site.)

A couple folks at Agilent asked me to thank you for your contribution.

Again, Thanks!

I wanted to do this two years ago, but computer events conspired to
slow me down.


It's about 9 MB, 400DPI scans in B&W for the text/drawings and 8 bit
grey for the photos.

I scanned all the schematics as two B&W pages and glued them together
into one 11x17 page per sheet using Photoshop. I added the board
photos with the same page numbers as regular sized pages before the
schematics, sort of like it appears in the manual's fold-out pages.

Please let me know if anything needs fixing.

Also, anyone who knows the Agilent obsolete-manual librarians,
perhaps you could pass it along to them. It's been a rather glaring
omission from their collection for a long time now.

And I'll be happy to take it down from my website if such things as
manuals for obsolete electronic items shouldn't be exposed to the
