Ok - I got the transparent "passthrough" program working, so I can
read tapes directly from the H8 into my H8T program on the PC. Using
this I was able to recover all of the software from the tapes that Jack
sent to me. It took a bit of searching, but I was able to find unconfigured
version of all the early H8 Software.

Here is a list of the H8 Tape software I've collected so far:

Name      Version  Description
BHBASIC1  05.01.01  Benton Harbor Basic
BHBASIC2  05.01.02  ""
BUG8-1    02.01.01  H8 Console Debugger
BUG8-2    02.05.00  ""
TED8-1     3.01.01  H8 Text Editor
TED8-2     3.05.00  ""
HASL8-1    4.01.01  H8 Assembly Language
HASL8-2   04.05.00  ""

BHBCONS   --.--.--  Benton Harbor Basic Console functions (from tape label)
