Hello everyone.

I have just purchased a TRS80 model 4 26-1069.
I am looking for a serial card.
The goal is to communicate with BBS.
Thanks

The Model 4 had RS-232 built in to my knowledge. Was your daughterboard damaged or missing? The port should be on the bottom, next to the expansion port.

Hello Zombie nerd

Unfortunately, there is no card in its place behind the motherboard.
My model 4 262-1069, did not come with this card, I think....

I saw on the internet, that you could find a compatible card ( https://www.ebay.fr/itm/165265721945 ), but 100€, I find that a bit expensive...

the 1069 Model 4 is a 4NGA board, which translates to mean the floppy disk controller board and the RS232C Board are separate secondary PCB's
you will also need the Flat Cable to connect it to your Model 4NGA motherboard so it can communicate with it.

Where do you live? I have a working RS232C board and cable, send me a private mail if interested, I will need to know where to live to quote ship price.
