  1. digging around in my attic, i located an old portable quotrek machine that uses fm radio for quotes. are these devices still being broadcasted for ?? net search turned up old info only. does anyone know anything about these units ??


  2. eSignal Support

    The QuoTrek is still in use but only in a handful of remaining cities. As those cities come up for renewal, we are terminating the service in that region. It's unlikely that FM service will continue beyond 2003. We've been migrating customers to eSignal for the last 3-4 years.

    When we get QuoTrek units back, we are disposing of them in an appropriate manner. They hold little value in terms of parts.

  3. That brings back some memories...:D

    My old job required me to travel around the country, and I always
    looked forward to getting to the major cities so I could
    whip out my Quotrek and check my options...
  4. that's insane!!

    what are FM quotes like in terms of speed and reliability??

  5. It wasn't to bad. At the time it was state-of-the-art. Expensive as
    hell, too. I think I was paying like $300 a month.

  6. i remember those days ! i traded options with mine and use to hide it in my desk drawer at work. looking back i can't believe i ever made any money trading like that ! it was a great intro to tape reading and hand drawing charts on paper.

    wild stuff,
