     If the transport is the dead part and the
electronics are working you can use them for a demo in the vein of
5N10.60 - Radio Waves.  There was one described on Tap-L a while
back.  I have it summarized if you're interested.  If you're
just interested in parts, the remote control electronics might be useful

The only thing I can think of is the RF output, but then you need to know
the power requirements.  Thanks dave
