Well, the schematic is also available on the TEAMs site (adjacent to the
assembly instructions), although "L1 for 1K" and "L2 for 2K" does not
exactly specify the number of RAM ICs . . .

There were a number of revisions of the PCB which were issued.

BUT -- I have 2 ZX81 PCBs and 1 TS1000 PCB close at hand, and what I found
is that NO jumper is installed on either of the ZX81 boards (both are Issue
One and have 2x2114), but the TS1000 (Issue 3 with a single 2016) has L2
(actually marked LK2) installed.

I have a couple of dozen more of these at my shop, and will check them out
as well.

No, but I'd like to read it ;>)
