Hi Mike!

One of my classic computer interests is VMEbus gear. I see you have some
modules. Could I obtain the ones I pointed out below?

I would like one. Interesting module number. Is this 01-W3471 number on one
of the ejector levers (like "MVME147SC-1" would be on the unit below?) Any
EPROMS from Motorola onboard?

This one I could use as a spare for my similar model '147. I have a system
running OS-9/68k v. 2.4. Still have its Moto EPROMS?

>This is a wire wrap prototyping board

Yes! I want to do some good ol' fashioned hardware hacking on my VME crate.
This would do it!

What's a 'UGC'?

'IOP' could probably mean I/O Processor.

Any idea as to what their function was? Any CPU's onboard?

It's an HPIB, aka (officially) IEEE-488.

I have two of the non-G versions (2631A). Wish I could get this but I can't
justify the shipping even if you were able to ship it. Any extra manuals
for this critter tho?

Yeah, it was me!! Thanks again. It works okay too!

What's an MS400?? Just curious.

For whatever is available out of this list I will certainly at least cover
shipping costs and expenses.

Thanks Mike. Hope you had a good Christmas. I'm setting here coughing to
death from a doggone heavy cold I picked up last week. Ugh! Shoveling snow
to get Santa to come near the roof of the house got to me I guess ;-)

Best regards, Chris
