    Cool.  Publish details.

    If it has a full board complement you may well have a fairly
capable weather observation station as well if you can locate
details on the sensors or a complete decommissioned set.  But,
at 130 watts continuous the thing might be a bit too much of a
pig for your tastes.

    The satellite feeds might be interesting as well if you have a
handy antenna setup.

    The shot of the rear panel was "instructive" even though I had to
use a magnifying glass on it.
