Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

Looking for circuit information on the
effects a BNC has when it splits a line into two. (source splits to
'line A' and to 'line B'. Line B is a 1M ohm scope input. Line A goes
to another scope input which is 1M as well. Is it true in this scenario
the total 'load' seen by the source is now 500K?

There is some information missing in your description:
are also other impedances involved like the impedance of the source
and the characteristic impedance of the BNC connector (and also cables?),
which have to be taken into consideration.

At least at DC to Low Frequency it is
true you will see 500K ohms at the input of the TEE.

in the small print of the specs for the so-called 1 megohm load device,
might be reference to the shunt capacitance. At high frequencies almost
certainly this factor will dominate the impedance calculation.
At bottom, life is all about
and blowing out.
