How accurate is the clock in a scope? Do the high end scopes have an
external clock input?
I remember playing with a scope many years ago. Trigger on a PPS from a GPS,
look at the next PPS. It should be 1 second later. I think the scope I was
using was off by 6 PPM.
I'd expect that there would be a crossover. For short times, the scope would
be better. For long times, the better crystal (or external input) in the
5335 would take over.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
