      Welcome to the group. I would love to learn more about the AIM 65. I will
      let you know when the hacking weekend will be, or maybe sometime sooner. I
      live in Landenberg, PA, not that far from you.

      I hopefully will be getting the AIM 65 setup from my co-worker this week.
      He had used it in the 70's and 80's to build and circuits for the broadcast
      industry. He told me he also has the expansion cage (I am assuming the
      Microflex 65 cage) as well as some breadboards and other expansion cards.
      So I am very excited about this.
