I would guess it revolves around the cost.
Impossible to say if any CS is left. But for cheap it may be worth trying.
But then shipping will most likely get you.
I do agree GPS locked RB is a very nice way to go. At least in the US
various RB references much newer in age with possibly more life show up on
epay all the time.
I have an older hp5065 RB that still working like a champ those must be at
least 30 years.
