I was about to ask the same question when I ran into this post. I'm also curious to know what kind of oscilloscope to look for.
Thanks :D

Any osciliscope that will do 30 MHz plus will do not job.
I have Tektronix scope for sale (UK only) I am open to offers.

Go Tektronix. I just bought several more recently. They are the most reliable and accurate scopes made. Just check out Tektronix history.
If you can afford a scope with cursers, you will love it for fine measurements.

Experts recommend going 3-4 times over the bandwidth of the highest frequency you will be using. Ricks recommendation will be fine however for most CB needs.

So a tecktronic at 100 mhz should handle any cb needs, is that correct?
