 Oscilloscopes can be used dangerously,​ especially when connecting to anything connected to the mains voltages. **Getting it wrong can result in __loud__ noises followed by __deathly__ slience**. ​    ​Obviously **electrocution** is a potential danger, but incorrect connections can also **melt** scope probes, cause **fires**, as well as **destroying** the **scope** or **unit** being tested. You may be surprised how mains earths can and do cause those problems. Internally scopes contain >​**8kV**,​ and they can retain the charge long after the scope is switched off. Oscilloscopes can be used dangerously,​ especially when connecting to anything connected to the mains voltages. **Getting it wrong can result in __loud__ noises followed by __deathly__ slience**. ​    ​Obviously **electrocution** is a potential danger, but incorrect connections can also **melt** scope probes, cause **fires**, as well as **destroying** the **scope** or **unit** being tested.

-Since they were either faulty or a pain to use, and we had better scopes with these features, in February 2019 we disposed of these scopes: Wavetek 9020, Gould OS300, Tek TDS340, Schlumberger 5602.C, Hameg HM203. ​+Since they were either faulty or a pain to use, and we had better scopes with these features, in February 2019 we disposed of these scopes: Wavetek 9020, Gould OS300, Tek TDS340, Schlumberger 5602.C, Hameg HM203

 +To make more room and to reduce the equipment that needed to be moved to the new premises, in October 2020 we disposed of the Tektronix DM63 and the Topward 7042.
