It's a multi-channel analyzer (MCA) used mainly for statistical counting
in the nuclear field. Basically, they sort pulses by height (voltage,
and by implication energy) into 'bin', and plot the number of pulses in
each bin on the CRT.

I've got a later model, scintillators and all that pointless rot.
They're fun toys.

If in good shape, they're worth some hundreds to $1500. It's old, 80s?
but functinoally usable. I haven't kept up with the tech, check out
www.oetech.com. He may buy it (for the lower end price, he tests and
resells) and may be interested in other stuff line NIM and CAMAC format
gear. Don't expect to get rich.

I may be interested in NIM gear (modules about 8" high x 2" wide that
slide into a rack chassis with a funny blue amphenol on the back) or
other stuff. Radiation spectroscopy is a hobby of mine.
