The interesting thing about this, is that it is a well accepted by
people in the know, just what the sampling oscilloscope con is, and it
all boils down to you cant get something for nothing..., cake and eat
In fact, I thought I gave a pretty reasonable, not too technical,
explanation of how you can use a bank of mixers (f, 2f, 3f..), with say,
1hz noise filters, that would enable recovery of an arbitrary shaped,
but repetitive signal. In this case, its pretty clear that the BW is the
sum of each of the mixers filtered output, not the BW spanned by n*f.
