I think I have a 20ma 1200 baud DEC PRS-01 papertapereader , I could miss
for some time. It is located in Arnhem, The Netherlands, not so far from
where Ed Groenenberg lives. With an RS232C-20ma convertor it could be
connected to any PC.

Subject: Reading PDP-8 paper tapes
A long-time acquaintance of mine (Graham Toal, whom
some of you may
know) has access to a collection of PDP-8 paper tape which wants
reading. Unfortunately some of it is in the care of the Royal Musuem
in Edinburgh, who won't let it out of their sight.
Does anyone -- preferably in the UK -- have a paper tape reader that
could be hooked up to a modern machine (eg a laptop) to read the tapes
in the museum, and which they'd be willing to lend?
To see what Graham and friends are doing, take a look at
It's worth a look even if you're not
interested in Edinburgh.
I know Graham reads the list, so replies here or to me are fine.
