Hi - COVID project.... I have been attempting to read some old Honeywell
DDP-516 papertapes using the OP-80A or Teletype reader but it's inefficient
and I don't want to damage the tapes. Does anyone have a reliable
papertape reader for sale, or recommend one currently out there on Ebay,
for the purpose of archiving papertapes of any kind safely and reliably. I
have a reasonable budget. I have a lot of tapes that need to be archived,
so I'd want one that I can interface with to capture into TAP files or what
I would call a raw dump listing of the data in 8-bit Hex. MITS, SWTPc,
Z80 stuf, PDP 8, PDP 11, Honeywell, etc.
End goal is to load tapes into simH, PDPGUI, Altair/S-100, textfiles to
display tapes. I want to be able to view the tape as it would be in Intel
or Motorola format, etc. What does everyone else do?
Thanks for any advice.
