I'm still digging. I found more 550 stuff. I think this is everything
that came with the 550. Here's a chance for you 550 owner's to get the
whole set at one shot!
Original DS-DOS box and invoice.
Original Sanyo Easywriter ver 1.3 disk
Original Sanyo disk box with 550 dos ver 2.11 and BASIC 1.25, two
original Sanyo disk for InfoStar (set B disk 2 and 3 of 4; disks 1 and 4
are below), original Sanyo disk for DOS 1.25 and BASIC ver 1.1
Original Sanyo disk box with all three original disk of set A, WordStar
and CalcStar and a backup copy of DS-DOS.
Two card board dummy disks used to protect the floppy drives duing shipment.
>A few weeks ago we were talking about the Sanyo 550 series and someone
mentioned one of the alternates operating systems that supported 80 track
drives in the 550. I said that was DS-DOS by Michtron.
> Today I found an old Sanyo disk package with four disks for the 550. One
of them is DS DOS 2.11, one is InfoStar, one is MailMerge/SpellStar and the
other is a disk of misc utilities. The first three are original disks. In
additon, the InfoStar, MailMerge/SpellStar are Sanyo labeled disks that
came with the 550. If anyone wants them, trade me something I can use and
they're all your's.
I just joined this mailing list today on the advice of more than one vintage
computing contact. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about
the Protec Microsystems PRO-83 Z80 Single-Board Computer. I have conducted
an exhaustive search of the Internet and found only two sites (one from a
surplus store and a picture of it from a museum). I would appreciate any
information available, especially information regarding the power supply and
peripheral devices. Thank you very much.
MSN Photos is the easiest way to share and print your photos:
I have a couple of HPIB cables available at $15 the pair, shipped.
1 HP10833A ~42"
1 HP92220R ~12"
The 92220R has a right-angle connector at one end and the usual
straight connector at the other. (I wonder if the 'R' indicates
a right hand connector?)
First come, first served.

I wonder how long it will be before some fool donates a PDP or some
other piece of kit we hold near and dear to our hearts, to these miscreants.
Sure, it's amusing when it's a 286 being pipe-bombed, but probably not
so much fun (for me, anyway) when they get their hands on an Amiga or a Sol.
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye...

Does anyone know exactly what a Smoke Signal Broadcasting DCB-4E cards are
for? It's and EXORbus card and has a MC6821P and a WD FD1791B-02 LSICs and
a lot so SS TTL ICs on it. Does anyone have data for the card?

Those chips are:
DEC 21-17311-01 or 21-17311-02 = T-11 processor
DEC 21-17312-00 or 21-17312-01 = DC 319 DLART
DEC 57-00001-01 = KEF11 FIS
DEC 57-00000-01 = Ctrl/Data Hybride of 11/23
DEC 21-15542-01 = MMU of 11/23
I have those parts over here, and since both the original poster and myself are
located in Germany, I have already dropped them a line and helped them out.
