- I made a road trip to Coatesville today, to pick up some vintage
Northstar Advantage, with software and manual
Two Hazeltine Esprit III terminals and manual, only one keyboard
S-100 chassis, motherboard and power supply
Northstar Horizon disk drives and power supplies
Various Northstar software on 5-1/4" hard-sectored diskettes
The Kaypro 1 will be available for trade or sale, after I check it.
After the pickup, I headed south (22 miles) to Bill Degnan's tech
workshop, for a flying visit. Besides Bill, Ian, Alex Bodnar, Jon
Chapman, Doug (???) and someone whose name I didn't catch were there.
I left after an hour, and headed back to State College.
The gentleman I visited in Coatesville turned out to be the current
president of the Telphone Collectors, International group:
He has an incredible setup in his basement, including a Western
Electric Number 5 Toll Test Board, a 1926 vintage PAX and a 1970's vintage
Western Eletric crossbar PABX. Most of it is interconnected and WORKING!
All in all, a nice day.
