I want to see an AM carrier wave and the resulting encoded frequency and the DC (I think) out of the wave, the information getting to my earpiece.
What kind of Oscilloscope do I use for seeing the representation of radio waves? Do I need an analog or will digital work?
I have seen videos of digital, but they appear to be "slow," on the older Analog scopes, it is faster and seems more responsive. I'm not sure I care which one as long as it is not a struggle to see it. With digital, I am guessing I can capture the information and view it offline, which would be better for analysis, so I can understand.
For frequency, I mean a USA AM radio station, 535 - 1605kHz.
I'm sure after that I'd want to use it for non-RF things.
One thing I am interested in is a Crystal Radio, no battery, and a scope showing what is being received, if that is even possible.
I am not asking for a specific product recommendation.
I originally asked this, but I think I didn't ask the right question:
