   For any who don't know, the 465 is one of Tektronix' best designs, 
which cemented their place as the maker of the industry's finest 
oscilloscopes.  They don't play video games or have glitzy touch 
screens, but for getting real work done with no BS, a 465 will handle 
just about anything except for very high-speed (multi-GHz) work or 
analysis of sporadic signals (as it's not a storage instrument).

   They are well-documented, well-understood at the community level, easy 
to work on, and easy to find parts for.

   Whomever grabs this will love it.  I'd grab it myself, but I already 
have one. (actually, I think, four)
