  Fucking digital elitist!! Analog-shunning technocrat!!!

   If you weren't so busy turning your binary nose up at us lowly
'voltmeter is a *useful tool*' types, you be able to guess that all "that
analog crap" is the cassette and TTY interface circuitry.

   Since it deals with (gasp!) audio signals, there are a few (shudder!)
capacitors and resistors and diode - thingies in there.

   But not to worry! If it breaks, you can come out here to the Linear
Slums and some one-eyed toothless RMS Geek will slink out with one of
those "soldering irons" and get you back on the air, von Neumann!!!

   Then you'll get the (manual-typed) Invoice... he he he!!!
