Andy, I'm truly sorry this didn't go anywhere, in spite of Forster's
attempt to hijack the thread. You got more replies from heavy hitters
than I ever did. (Excuse me, Magnus, if you do not consider yourself
as a heavy hitter.)
What you have is a device that has a CRT display and Nixie displays,
an antenna connection, and several 50 pin connectors. A creative
bit banger could make a marvelous display from this unit. Truly
creative bit bangers are hard to find these days.
Have I challenged anybody here? Andy is one of the good guys.

Thanks to all who replied. I think I'm in over my head with this one. There
are far easier ways for me to try to receive Loran C, and I have no
shortage of projects.
So... Forgive me if this is not allowed on this reflector...
