I'm still kicking myself for not buying some 4040 (or was it 4004) CPU
chips, they had them for a couple of bucks, long ago...

Any idea if there are tuning units available to bring it into a ham band?
The one that's in there (TU-17 I think???) is for 2-3 MHz, so it missed
both of the obvious choices. Not like we have enough trees for a decent
80 m wire antenna, but some day we'll move...

Speaking of crazy surplus places, does anyone know if John J. Meshna is
still in business? They were in Lynn, MA. They used to be the same kind
of deal, they had a catalog full of weird stuff, but then lots of *really*
random crap in ones and twos that you could find by poking around in the
clutter at their shop.
