As you have probably found out by now, 4 inch CRTs are real oddballs. The
only "production" (that is "over the counter") CRTs of this size I know of
are the 4AP1 and 4AP10, and they are almost nonexistant.

Frankly, your best bet is to find another AN/ALR-56 display. One should
turn up eventually. What is the IP- number of the box?
