The instrument always terminates messages with LF and EOI. It allows white space before the terminator. For example, it allows CR LF.</DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>   Another thing about Tek scopes is they're not big on talking back.  They won't alert you to bad syntax, they just won't do it. You have to verify each command to assure completion.  In some cases you may also have to put in a delay to allow for (slow) execution.</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT> </DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>         Hope this helps.</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>         Best regards</FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>         </FONT></DIV><DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Howard K.
