nixies! 022

I am a sucker for any old nixie display equipment! This is a Astrodata countdown clock that came out of a Thor missile launch control room at Vandenberg AFB. This unit generated the countdown timing and has outputs to drive remote countdown display boards. Countdown time can be set on front panel, the unit still works perfectly after 40 years :) Below the Astrodata is my Datum time code generator, also with Nixie tube display.
