I have the 1630G Users Manual in electronic-only form. It and a bunch
of other 16xx and 16xxx series docs were (are?) up until recently
available on an HP/Agilent FTP site. I mirrored said site onto a set of
CD_ROM disks that I beleive I distributed copies of to a few people on
this list not long ago. If you haven't located a copy by now holler at
me in private email and I'll see if I can dig it out.

I have a 1630G with Pods that I, sadly, haven't used as much as I hoped
I would when I acquired it. It's originally one from the labs at
Honeywell in Minneapolis.
