    "The Type 549 Storage Oscilloscope is a laboratory instrument to operate with all Tektronix letter-series or one-series plug-in units.

    The cathode ray tube (T5490) used in the Type 549 is a direct view, bistable storage tube having a 6 X 10 cm display area, divided into two 3 X 10 cm targets. The targets are independently controlled for split screen applications. An additional area which does not store is provided to the left of the targets. This area functions as a locate zone in single sweep store mode." (Tektronix, Manual 549, 1966)
