Our attic is not considered useable. It is just a place for air to circulate over insulation. The only person to be up there was our home inspector before we bought the place last summer. But, today, our future roofer stuck his head through the hatch to check out the underside of the sheeting. I was surprised when called down, "Is any of this up here yours?" My wife asked, "What's up there?" "A nice metal box fan and a bushel basket full of...electronics." I said, "Hello!" "Do you want it?" "We didn't put it up there, but yes, we want to see it." He handed the basket down to my wife. There were a few ancient Nintendo hand controls, 2 sets of headphones with 1/8" plugs, and a BC-210 scanner--no powercord, no antenna, just the scanner. I haven't hooked it up to a power source yet, but I am a ham and I can innovate. I'll play around with it tomorrow and program some repeaters, if it works, a nice addition to my VHF shelf. Yea, Bearcat!
