Abstract : The patent describes a method and means for converting a commercial-plug-in oscilloscope to a radar B-scope display unit. Firstly, the CRT electron-beam scan is changed from a horizontal to a vertical sweep by placing the time-base generator in the vertical side and the amplifier in the horizontal side. The retrace blanking signal is also changed from the horizontal to the vertical side via a switch. Secondly, the display is converted to intensity modulation through a wide-bandwidth, high-gain amplifier. Thirdly, the standard CRT is replaced by one having a long-persistence screen. Fourthly, a range-mark pulse generator is incorporated in the unit.
