With power applied (power knob pulled out), the spectrum analyzer will automatically (upon microcomputer control) go into the following conditions. If you do not find these indications, there is a probably a problem with the unit.
·   Vertical display: 10 dB/div;
·   Frequency: 0.00 MHz;
·   REF level: +30 dB;
·   RF attenuation: 60 dB;
·   Frequency range: 0.0 to 1.8 GHz;
·   Auto resolution: 1 MHz;
·   Resolution bandwidth: 1 MHz;
·   Freq Span/Div: Max;
·   Triggering: Free run;
·   Readout: On;
·   Digital storage: View A/View B On;


·   All other indicators off or inactive.


Now that we have completed this chapter, we will briefly review the more important points covered. A CATHODE-RAY TUBE (CRT) is used in an oscilloscope to display the waveforms.
The CRT used in oscilloscopes consists of an ELECTRON GUN, a DEFLECTION SYSTEM, and a FLUORESCENT SCREEN.
The ELECTRON BEAM in an oscilloscope is allowed to be controlled in any direction by means of HORIZONTAL- and VERTICAL-DEFLECTION PLATES.
VERTICAL-DEFLECTION PLATES are used to show AMPLITUDE of a signal.
A GRATICULE is a calibrated scale of AMPLITUDE VERSUS TIME that is placed on the face of the CRT.
A DUAL-TRACE OSCILLOSCOPE is designed to accept two vertical inputs at the same time. It uses a single beam of electrons shared by two channels.
The SPECTRUM ANALYZER accepts an electrical input signal and displays the signal’s frequency and amplitude on a CRT display.


A-1.   Control grid.
A-2.   The first anode.
A-3.   Because they bend electron streams in much the same manner that optical lenses bend light rays.
A-4.   It accelerates the electrons emerging from the first anode.
A-5.   A greater deflection angle.
A-6.   A greater deflection angle.
A-7.   Higher potential.
A-8.   Slower beam.
A-9.   Amplitude and time.
A-10.   Amplitude.
A-11.   Time and/or frequency relationships.


A-12.   To permit wide-angle deflection of the beam.
A-13.   Deflection factor.
A-14.   A CRT, a group of control circuits, power supply, sweep circuitry, and deflection circuitry.
A-15.   Lower.
A-16.   Amplitude, phase, time, and frequency.
A-17.   Dual-trace oscilloscopes.
A-18.   Front end.
