My old Tektronix 2792 Microwave Spectrum Analyser

Tektronix 2792 Microwave Spectrum Analyser

Frequency range:10 kHz to 21 GHz   Min resolution bandwidth: 1 kHz.   I have repaired a scrap analyser with new CRT tube, rotation coils etc and repairs to the front panel and internal parts.   It now works well(*) and it suitable for earth station dish antenna alignment, sidelobe pattern tests, sub reflector adjustments, focussing and Eutelsat or Intelsat G/T antenna acceptance tests.   It is heavy, approx 46 lb.  I don't have the handbook for this spectrum analyser.  I am interested in PC interconnection and any software to do waterfall type data collection.   Now faulty - when used on 14 GHz the wanted signal vanishes when narrow spans are selected.
