Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Wow, an acoustic coupler! Would all the young ones on here even now what one of these are? LOL!  Would love to know what the 'top secret project' is, as the coupler is not much use on it's own.

War-dialing BBS's perhaps?

The last things I remember using acoustic coupling were the terminals for hearing impaired.

Now there's a thought... sometimes they do.  There's also another shop up that way specialising in antique gear.  A trip might be in order...

Bah, Surplustronics said "no".. might have to jury-rig something instead
