Greetings, and welcome.
I'll buy it as is if you decide to sell it. I want it just as a collectors piece.
I almost bought one 10 years ago, and passed on it because it was "unfixable" from what I was told at the time.
If anyone can fix it, I'd say Rolland's your man.
I know Bill at Rita's is the guru on programming micro chips in the Carver / Sunfire receivers too.
The CT-30x was also called the CT-5.1x for a short time. Very nice looking unit for sure !!
is this it ??
