Regarding the Austron 2000C setup:

I just finished going through the chart recorder method of
determining the tracking point, and it turns out that I was
correct in my visual determination using the oscilloscope and
sweep rates of 5 and 10 us/division. However, it is much 
easier to see the first cycle of the pulse on the chart
paper than on the 'scope screen. I can see that with higher
background noise, the chart recorder would be better.  Presumably
I could replace the paper chart recorder with a DAQ/PC 
arrangement as well.
