   This is essentually a Z-100 but without the built-in monitor. I THINK
they had a composite video output. It runs CPM or a non-IBM version of
MS-DOS. The H-xxx models are the same as the Z-xxx models except the were
sold by Heathkit and were kits and the Zenith Z-xxx models were
pre-assembled. If no one else wants the H-101, I wouldn't mind having it
to add to my Z-100 collection.

   There are some test functions built into ROM on the Z-100 so you can
test memory and do a few other things without disks IF you can connect a
monitor. Let me know if you need details.
