I've always liked Tektronix equipment. My summer job was building scopes for them when I was in high school and I later worked in a Tek wafer fab.
So I tend to get old tek hardware for my test setup. Just what I grew up with. And this stuff is outstanding even for 30 year old stuff (kinda like my decks)
It can also be boght off ebay for not too much and the manuals are very good.
Here is what I use mostly:
Tek 465 Dual trace 100 MHz scope - I bought this broken for $75 and fixed it.
TM504 mainframe (free)
DM501 4.5 digit meter (free - broken but I fixed it)
DM502 3.5 digit meter (Free - and it was working!)
DC503A 110 MHz universal counter ($35 off eBay Working)
PS501 tracking power supply (Free!)
Signal generator (generic aerospace - $40)
This setup covers almost anything. The signal generator is levels which means that it keeps a constant output as you change the frequency. The DM501 reads has 4.5 digits to you can measure -10 dB as 0.3160 V and it gives true RMS to over 150 kHz.
I suppose that I'll get a FG501 function generator to replace the signal generator some day.
