It's still there (up in the clouds), slowly coming down.  I'll wait.

The fact that you know where it was in service is nice.

Price seems high. I paid $335 delivered for my 555

When it gets down to that range I'll consider it.

Greg, have you checked with the communications museum in Seattle? They probably get lots of donated stuff that they would rather turn into a couple hundred $ to find something else.

I have not, but it's not a huge priority.  This is the first time I looked around online for one since the original post.
