I have a 465 which is in reasonable nick bought at a Hamfest. It is quite
adequate for what I am doing with RF and does appear to have a bandwidth to

Get a manual and a second one for parts.Spend a bit of time and you have a
good piece of test gear. For the hobbyist on a budget it is the only way to
get a decent setup.
