619Looking for an Old computer
- Feb 4, 2014
I am a little embarassed to admit it (because a "select" few will laugh!) but I am looking for an old computer. And by old, I mean REALLY old !! :) For my packet radio resurrection project, I need something with a bus speed way down around 60 - 100 Mhz. So this means something from the 486 era at the very least. A 386 would be fine too. I also need a computer with "real" serial ports. None of this USB crap !! RS-232 all the way !! :)
So if you have any old 486's in your shack being used as a book end or a shelf support, and you would like to see the end of it, please consider letting me take it off your hands.
Yep, I was right. I can hear the laughter already !! :)

P.S. My need has arisen because I just let all the smoke out of my old 486 laptop !! :)
