Said -

Thanks a lot. Copy received all OK and already printed out. I wrongfully
assumed that I would have to connect it to a PC for all measurements. I am
glad to hear that is not the case. Regardless, I have enough PCs around that
it would not be difficult to dedicate one for it. I will now read the manual
and be more prepared to know what to do with it when I get it. Thanks again
for your help. Best Regards - Mike

Hi Mike,
congrats on your Wavecrest. One of the best jitter and time-interval  
analyzers out there.
I will send you the 2070 PDF manual offline, its 1/2MB large.
Without Visi software and a GPIB card you can only do a couple of things  
with the unit:
   * Measure cable lengths down to ps
   * Print jitter histograms on old paralell port type  printers
   * Measure jitter on periods, time intervalls etc, and get two  numbers: 
range and RMS
   * Measure voltages, rise/fall times etc.
To make the unit really useful, you may want to connect it to your PC via  
Calibration is straight forward, one screw to adjust the 100MHz timebase,  
and a couple of screws for the power supply voltages. Everything else is  
Also, try googling Wave or Wavcrest, their website has lot's of info, but  
it's not properly referenced, and very hard to find.
