I'm doing a small sealed bid auction on the following:

>Novation Cat Modem 490190-4
        - Acoustically Coupled 300 Baud Modem
        - Original manual
        - Serial Cable
        - Power Supple
        - Packed in the original box. The box has some wear but no
        pieces of the cardboard are missing and all box photos look
        very nice. I think the fact that it comes in the original
        box etc makes it more collectible than the $5 units you can
        find at hamfests.

>Condition: This is the original Novation Cat acoustically coupled
        300 baud modem. Specs are 0-300 Baud, Bell 103 compatibility,
        RS232C interface, does Answer (NOT auto-answer) and Originate,
        etc etc. Should add a bit of Wargames flavor to that S100
        system you've been restoring. I purchased it because the
        seller told me it was an Apple Cat. I've never tried it but
        there's not much that can go wrong with these units. Nonetheless,
        I cannot guarantee its condition.

Thanks. Again, I feel it's better to auction the stuff here than on Ebay since
the items are more likely to find homes with genuine collectors and not
