If it is the 6 GHz equipment I think it is (that I donated) it was a  
bit over 10 years ago, maybe close to 15, but it was brand new  
installed MCI equipment.  MCI replaced equipment at Western Union  
sites (I owned MANY) in order to get the fly-swatter reflectors off  
the towers so MCI could re-use some of the spectrum.  Soon after, the  
Air Force decided they no longer needed the dedicated - isolated phone  
system, so everything went surplus.  We needed the microwave stuff out  
of the way, so we gave it away in exchange for it being gone right away.

I don't want that stuff back, BUT, I would be interested in equipment  
racks.  My home network is out of control.
