Love reading through your old KIM-1 debugging thread. I have a working KIM-1 and have been playing around with it and making a few videos, on some simple assembly language programs that can be typed in on the keypad. That use the 6530 to create small bread board project.
I am getting to the point that I would like to connect my KIM-1 to a terminal program running on my computer. So, I guess I need to create a current loop to RS 232 adapter. Do you have any drawings that can help me wire something like this up? After that, I would have to learn how to use it, as well.
Also, I do not know what your affiliation is with the VCF, but I was just chatting with Earl Baugh, President AHCS who is involved in the VCF SE events, up in Atlanta GA.
I wanted to entertain the idea that we start a VCF Florida down here in Orland Fl. YEAH !!!
I know there are no VCF single State Events, but does that mean it would not be impossible, or like our vintage computers, would this just be a new evolution? Then maybe a VCF Texas, as our friend Mike Douglas @ www.deramp.com would be a real show stopper down there. Anyway, I would like your thoughts on this idea.
Maybe we should start a new thread so that everyone who might think this a good idea can make their own comments and suggestions.
