cf other message, but I know several things _are_ working: the bulbs, the PSU,
both MS8-C cards, at least 90% of the KK8E board set. At the moment, I can't
verify proper serial operation so I can't load diagnostic tapes. I have two
boards - M865 and M8650. I have a homemade (tested) RS-232 cable for the
M8650 and a 20mA cable missing the black Berg housing (Mate-n-Lok on one end,
crimped on gold pin contacts on the other - no 40-pin connector body). The
M865 has a 12" cable and a Mate-n-Lok 20mA connector on it, but I can't find
my box of TTY cables (to hook up my VT220 to it). I still have this pr/s01
20mA portable papertape reader, but I still know nothing about it, especially
baud rate. I haven't yet hauled a 'scope out to the place the -8's are at.
That's one of the next steps.
