Has anyone ever heard of these. They are sitting in our gear shack. I can't find a thing on the internet. Not even in the Waybackmachine. I've attached a picture. Do you think they could be used somehow or do the belong in the below mentioned museum. Thanks.

RE: Using a SouthernCross Scoreboard with spilit second (in Scoreboards- PST & ALGE) by Jefe
I spoke to Geoff about using a Southern Cross Scoreboard with a laptop. He said that unlike modern scoreboards, the Southern Cross does not work with a RS232 data-stream. You need a device called a power loop adaptor in between the serial port and the scoreboard....

Brings back some memories! I can't help you with a manual, but reflectors are reflectors, you can use TAG or Alge reflectors as they designed for this job and have robust mounting systems and sun/snow shade built in. Most timers have moved on from reflector systems to through-beam style, so there are probably folks with surplus reflectors available.
