I've got the CRT version with a 24" (I think) 4kw dome. It's old school and simple, but it works and tunes well. I'd replace it with a modern radar, but it refuses to break.

Good to hear.

Ours is 4kw too, with a 19.9" dome.

Here's the product manual if you don't have a copy;

Does it have an output that can go into a chart plotter or my laptop?

Nope. No MARPA.

I think the only NMEA interface is that you can input course data to it via 0183.
