Greeting to all 30 or so of us. I saw the notice about the new list on
Heathkit ham radio list and thought '...why not!'. So here goes. My
present Heath/Zenith computers include one Z-100 (with a 10MB harddisk -
wow!) - the low profile model; one Z-100 All-In-One with a pair of
floppy drives, a pair of 8" drives (not the Heathkit variety although I
did have some for awhile) for either one; and one remaining H-89 with a
H-77 dual disk drive (converted to soft-sector DS DD, if I remember
correctly). I also have an H-25 printer holding down one corner of the
attic. And tons of software and documentation. I worked at Heathkit
from 1977 to 1981 in the Ham Radio group and got my first computer (not
including an upgraded education/lab unit - the one with 6800 - with the
optional BASIC and memory expansion box) - an H-89 - my first year there
(August if I remember correctly). The H-89 I have now is not, I think,
my first one. I had two more H-89s but they got traded off/sold a good
many years ago.
None of these has been fired up for a good many years and one of these
days I will do a major house cleaning and get rid of at least one of the
Z-100s. Would also love to give the H-25 away to a good home (hint).
For a couple of years, I was member of the Heath Users Group (HUG) in
St. Joesph - in fact, I was the newsletter editor for a couple of years
using my trusty old H-14 printer.
The name 'Staunch89er' rings a loud bell! How about a little history to
fill in the gaps in that area? I may even have a few of the back issues
my self (along with a couple years worth of REMark and one or two other
.... Sextant? does that ring a bell?).
Got to sign off now and get to work on another newsletter - if I want to
go to bed at a decent time ... or at all, the way things are going.
