I like how none of the push buttons in the panel below the counters have 
labels, either on the faceplate or on the button themselves.

I'll see if I can track down more info. That handsome devil of an 
engineer in the picture probably still works at the lab (albeit with 
gray or no hair).  Heck, the rack with the instruments is probably still 
out at Goldstone and being used.  It's old enough that it doesn't have 
the new inventory barcodes on it, though.

I just checked, and there are no pieces of property with the 5360 in the 
model number.  So that piece of gear may have been excessed.

There are, however, 3 of the 5245 counters around, and judging from the 
location codes, I think they're still out at the DSN sites or similar. 
No 5265s in the database, but they may not have been separately 
inventoried.
