Re: [midatlanticretro] It's not too often you see any vintage computers at a Hamfest these days -- PET 2001
The outdoor fleamarket at Breezeshooters hamfest is as big as Dayton, but there's only about half as much indoor vendors. But I was thinking about 70s or earlier vintage computers, I found 60s era transistor circuit cards to a GE minicomputer last year, you always see stuff from the 80s.
I found a nice piece of equipment, A PAL Programmer fro Structured Design, SD20/24 (see link) It's from the company that was founded by John Birkner, one of the inventors of the PAL at MMI. It even has a builtin Stringy Floppy cassette player, I'm hoping I can find a manual for this.

We always have a few. Usually have 30 or so indoor vendors and 140+ tailgaters.

There's was a PET 2001(black bezel) for sale at the Hamfest last wknd(pic below), he wanted $1500 for this. He said he owned this since he first bought it new back then. He's someone that I've seen there at the Hamfest often, an old timer, but I think he had his hopes up too high. I see that Bryan sold his PET on eBay last month. He also had a portable SX-64, but I forget what he was asking for it. But the one thing that was cool, he had a Wire Recorder from the 40s(on the left) and it even included extra reels of recording wire. http://tinyurl. com/2auku44 <http://tinyurl.com/2auku44> =Dan -- http://www.vintagecomputer.net/ragooman/ <http://www.vintagecomputer.net/ragooman/> ------------------------------------ Yahoo!
