In the not-too-distant future, we will be replacing the antique HP 4145B 
with a more modern Agilent B1500 instrument.
While this new instrument will likely be more-or-less electrically 
equivalent to the old one, we will no longer have to put up with the 
funky LIF-formatted disks.  Based on a very quick examination, I believe 
that those of you who are comfortable with setting up and making a 
measurement with the HP 4145B will find that the "virtual control panel" 
on the new instrument is quite similar and should involve only a modest 
learning curve.

While I don't yet know when the transition will take place, I'd like to 
know if any of you will need the HP 4145B until a specific date or if 
you would be willing to transition to the new B1500 as soon as it 
becomes available.

If you think that you need the HP 4145 for a specific period of time, 
please let me know.
