A friend of mine was cleaning out his dad's garage and found a Valentine One. He called me and said they were going to sell it. I was like how much. He said about $200 maybe. Well I went and looked at it and I was like uh this does not look like the one I have.
I talked him down to $30 bucks.
I ran the serial on the valentine sight and once again it says it is up to date. But I called and here is what I found out.
The guy on the phone was going to have me check the firmware version. He said hold down the knob and turn it on that stuff. I was like no that does not work. It just says 8 and the when you push it again it goes into demo mode. He was like well that is weird. So, I gave him the serial number and he looked up.
He is like oh this is really old. This is one of the first ones and it is from 1992. I was oh man. He said it has no ka and no laser. To upgrade it would cost $279 with a trade in. I am not looking to do all that.
So, what do I do with it. I know it picks up K band good because I have a k band gun. But Ka it's a no go. Does anyone buy these things and collect them?
Here is a pic of it.
