Ah well, yes, a few.  ;-)

Anybody who suggested this should also suggest the 'scope bandwidth
that you'll need.  Scopes will lie to you if they have insufficient
bandwidth.  I'll presume that 2MHz is "good enough" since you asked
for inexpensive.

I think that you should call Peter (email above, details below) His
company makes 'scopes and generators that are inexpensive, functional
and Open.  I have some of their older gear.  The newer CGR-102 (kit
includes 'scope probes and other accessories) is a 'scope, signal
generator, etc all in one.  Looks good.

Peter has also given a presentation at KWLUG.  Combined with producing
Open Source lab gear and his interest in GPS, that clearly makes him a
"friend of the LUG".  ;-)

Best regards,
