The seller is just off the motorway on my daily commute and I called
in to have alook, as soon as I peeked through the ventilation grill it
was apparent there were  no cards in there.  It was a pull from
Jodrell Bank, I suspect a spare that had been sitting around for a
good while and the lack of any test sticker on the mains cable makes
me suspect care would be needed powering it up. I said it wasn't worth
50 quid and the seller agreed, said he'd see if he could get the
correct cards for it (good luck I thought) and put it up again if it
didn't sell, the ebay listing was changed while I was in the shop. I
expect it will pop up again but without any cards it's a bit of a boat
I couldn't see a manuf date anywhere on the enclosure, anyone know
when 11/03s were last made/sold?
