Hello all,

    A few years ago, I bought several HP Z3801A's. When they all arrived, I
added the internal jumpers for selecting between RS232 and RS422, and
connected them all to antennas and a PC to verify functionality of the units
as a whole and their timekeeping abilities. 
They all worked perfect and fell well within the normal ranges of operation.

    Since then, I've had a lot of drama in my life. I've changed jobs a
couple times, moved a couple times, etc etc. Well, my life is starting to
calm down some and I'm trying to get back into my hobbies, one of which is
being a time nut.

    I'm thinking about tracking down a couple Z3815A's and possibly other
pieces of hardware to add to my collection. To fund buying the other
equipment, I was thinking about getting rid of a couple of my Z3801A's. I
usually don't like to get rid of any piece of equipment, but if I was
getting rid of one GPSDO so that I can get other related equipment, I don't
think I'd feel too much remorse.

    My question is this... What is the current market value on working and
tested Z3801A's? And for that matter, what is the usual market value on
Z3815A's? Trying to see if I can make this work somehow.

Thank you,
Brad Stockdale
