Hi Jim,

Many thanks! Maybe I'll ask a few of the locals when I'm down there, too...

I recall reading in ER a LONG time ago about somebody who found a surplus
place somewhere in Mexica---had a bunch of old military gear & R390A's, but
I can't recall the prices...

Can you imagine trying to load one of them babies onboard a plane bound for
home as a piece of carry-on luggage...?!
