I'll raise my hand and admit that after watching that one get relisted
several times I bought it before someone else finally did and then
regretted not buying it while I had the chance. They can't be too easy
to find if you really need one.

I figure I can use it as a spare for my 2117F, or use it with my 2113E
as a 2117F after a firmware swap.

I wonder if the person that bought this somewhat sparsely populated
2117F for $500 realized that it won't be fully functional without the
FPP box?

I also have a couple of 1000 A900 boxes. No L-series boxes.
