I recently purchased a 3 year young unit with the blue screen for it's
re-sale ability along with the keyboard. It also is MARS capable.
I'm sure some one will want it someday.

I've had mine since 2002 and still love it to death. I had the
larger chip put in because I was curious and also thought it
would keep its value longer, but after a few tries with the CW
personality, I never use it. I use the Pegasus rig control
program with it while working the digital modes, and it
works just great for my needs.
Glad you got it working. Lots to discover with a new rig.
