Only place I've ever seen them was very rarely on eBay.
They've only come up once or twice a year* , and always in used condition. Seemed like a good idea, but were likely too expensive for the limited market, and maybe also became technologically obsolete?
Have you checked Defender, Amazon, etc?
And run some Bing/Google searches? A careful innartoobz search usually finds almost anything, including for-sale items.
I filter most email
into topical folders (using the Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird email
programs), where they stay 'forever'.
I'll do an email message search on the "CARD" on this machine, but the retention only goes back maybe two years. My main machine with an email archive going back 10 years? is down with a slight prob; I know there are some eBay CARD's in there.
...SOL, searched 22K+ eBay folder messages for "CARD" w/no radar-related matches (20 for computer cards).
*(I have a number of automatic 'searches' set up in which eBay runs daily, and then sends me a batch of emails about any found/matched items with the search criteria I've set up, several of which are 'marine radar' related.
This is a handy eBay feature to use if y'all haven't tried it, set it up initially (search parameters can be tricky), and then wait for any matches.
Saves constantly browsing eBay for some hard-to-find items.
I have a number of searches set up, and they seem to last forever (365+++...), or until you stop one.)
Sea Frog got it...looks just like the ones I remember from eBay, except for the brand name and labeling en Francias.
Kinda pricy though: 367€+...
