    Could someone briefly explain what exactly the bandwidth rating on a scope actually means to me, the user?

    My scope is 60Mhz, so does this mean if I had a signal like the output a 555, that was greater than 60Mhz I wouldn't be able to measure it?

    I was just reading a thread where someone mentioned an item working in the RF range (they mentioned 100Khz)

    So with my scope I would never be able to measure that? or see that signal?

    Sorry for the n00b question, I just don't fully understand the bandwidth rating and we never learned much about the actual scope in school, just how to use it for the stuff we were doing.
