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?

Think this is part of what you're looking for:
As soon as I get 'em, I'll scan 'em, in my Copious Free Time.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to announce thta I will be opening a new
Rainbow 100 website on Saturday, Feb 8. The site is located at:
Right now, all that is there is an announcement. I hope everyone will
take a moment top visit once it's open.
I haven't been keeping up with everything in the Rainbow commumnity. I
noticed that all the schematics have been posted on the Update
(ftp.update.uu.se) archives. Who took the time to do this? I just wanted
to thank them. Anyway, visit the page if you get a chance! Thanks!

I recently won an auction described as a "Science Fair Junior
Electronic Lab 10 in 1"... the picture showed a couple of
blue grid boards which were, AFAIK, not part of a 10-in-1
It turns out that in addition to the 10-in-1, there was
an entire (and a partial) "Science Fair Junior Project
Board Kit" (cat no. 28-153) - one manual, two plug boards,
one IC board (14-pin socket + 14 springs) plus a double
handful of mixed loose components.
The components are somewhat interesting from a historical
perspective - there are several flavors of transistor sockets,
several segmented LED displays (some on PCBs as from an LED
calculator, some in DIP form), mercury switches, reed switches,
and a bag of resistors with a "King Kits" card from Poly Paks.
I'm curious if there's a repository of ancient Radio Shack kit
manuals out there - I did not get a manual for the 10-in-1
(cat no. 28-225), but at least I got its box (covered in packing

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.
I have 3 Sony SMC-70 computers I need to find good homes for. 1 is
working and the other two boot but do not read the floppy completely.
Maybe some cleaning or adjustment of the floppy drives would help.
2 sets of CP/M for Sony. They do differ a bit. I thought I had some
applications but so far have not found them.
I have what I believe to be all the original documentation (4 loose leaf
note books in cardboard holders):
CP/M Operating System Parts 1-3
Sony SMC-70 Hardware Reference Manual.
1- small paperback Sony SMC-70 Micro Computer Operating Instructions
1-Sony SMC-7086 Supercharger (runs 16 bit apps I believe) but I do not
think the software is on the 2 floppy disks I have. There is a Manual
for this too.
1-SMI-7050 cache disk unit
1-XEBEC-70 (built similar to disk cache unit but not sure what it is)
1-SMI-7016 floppy disk control unit
1- unlabeled part that is similar in build to the 3 above.
I do have a Sony PVM 1271Q Trinitron Color Video Monitor with video
cable. You will however need to adapt a 9 pin connector to a 25 pin
connector (i used a serial cable and broke off one pin to allow use on
the computer side. I do get a very red screen so one would need to check
the pinouts for configuration)
Also, a Sony 1311CR with a cable that may well be adaptable for use.
If I find anything else as I clean I will include it.
Not sure what a value might be. I will entertain all offers for a week
or so and then if there is no interest here put them on eBay. I am
thinking it would be best to keep the working computer and addons
together. If someone were interested in the complete system I would
glady donate the other two to a museum or someone who wants to restore
This is just to remind anyone who saw my post a few days ago, and
hasn't yet decided they need to rescue this MINC...

The deadline was extended until next week, but it is now a firm
deadline -- the owner (not me) is in Edinburgh, and is moving office
next week, to a new site. There's no way the MINC can go with him, and
there's probably soe other stuff available as well. Surely someone can
rescue this machine!

I have a unique TRS-80 model 3 that I am trying to find some information on.
It has a catalog number of 26-1060, which I haven't been able to find any
references to on the internet. The majority of the Model 3s are 26-1066 (48k
2-disk systems). It also has a serial # of 0000365! This is a 32k system,
which no disk drives.
Have any of you seen one of these before? Why aren't there any references to
this catalog number out there?
I have a feeling this computer was made as a terminal of some sort for the
early "networking" that businesses, and particularly schools, used to do...
but if that's the case, one would think it would be a lot more common.
Just looking for any additional information you might have.....
