Mike, I have what I *think* is the same thing, and it is copyright 1986;
he was looking for pre 1984 or so. If you need copies of the software,
*assuming* the software I have is good, it won't be a problem. I can
bring it to TRW late this month.

Anyone know what frequency this works on, and if the supporting
transmitter is still on the air? It indicated this was a subscription
service, and I would be most interested to know how they enforced that.
