On a related note, I have in my hand a very old "Surfbeam" Via-Sat modem sitting in a pile of electronic debris in my basement beside a GE 17" CRT B&W TV set, an 8 track tape player and a 45 rpm record player.
I really don't see any benefit in owning a piece of expensive equipment that will likely be obsolete within a few years leaving me to get rid of it at my own expense.
But I'll give it to anyone who wants it and is willing to play postage!
Oh, and by the way, I also have a complete 1 metre dish assembly with TX/RX transducers that is clamped to a pole in my back yard. I'll also let it go to a new home of anyone who happens to be looking for such an item! --
