I'm jealous of your 611. I have a "parts" 611 here, raped of several components and the covers. I missed out on a complete one on eBay last week; I was very disappointed about that.

> Have you done anything interesting with yours?Its been to VCF. I demoed it in store and non-store mode. The deflection
isn't fast enough to keep up with the AX08 without some delays so I also
brought another monitor that worked better for space war. I can't remember

I may bring a RM503 this year since that a good period display for
My 547 and teletype made it on TV for 8 seconds.
