I don't know, but based on the information in this and the reply, I
ordered one from EIP yesterday.  For $45 shipped, I've spent more on
surge protectors and multimeters and if it works (even with a bit of
Kentucky Windage) it will fill a need I've had for years.

It could get here as early as tomorrow (they claim it shipped yesterday,
and shipping usually takes 2-3 days) so perhaps I'll be able to play and
report.
