I believe there are multiple 433 systems... if the type you have is
a table-top unit about two inches thick with the 3.5" floppy on the
right side of the unit, I might be able to help... contact me off-list.

Again, if it is the one I mentioned above, yes, you can have a hard
drive -- but it has to be a notebook-type 2.5" drive. I think the
floppy is a standard RX23... though you might be able to put in an
RX26 (2.88Mb).
