Evening all

I'm on the lookout for a TRS 80 CoCo model I or II in fairly good nick, Manuals would also be appreciated along with any Program PAKS or Tapes.
PAL 220-240 V only.

If you have a CoCo I with std Basic rather than Extended that's fine as I can replace the ROM..

Dragon 32 / 64 's also considered too.

Many Thanks

TC :)

Hey Bas!

I've got a CoCo 2 but it's NTSC. Let me know if you're interested. :)

Take care,

Heather

Hi Heather

Thanks for the kind offer, as expected the USA is flooded with old CoCo's but I really need a PAL 230V version...
I'm sure the shipping costs would also be a nightmare...

My first choice would be a CoCo I or II but failing that a Dragon 32/64 would do,, It's the 6809 based system I'm really after :shhh:

Many Thanks again....

TC :)

A couple of Dragon 32s went on eBay for less than *** apiece, just this weekend. (I know because one of them is on its way to me soon, I hope!).

I would've thought they'd be falling out of the trees where you live?

Dragon Data was, after all, a Welsh company wasn't it?

Why the interst in that particular CPU? What've you got planned?

@UKRetroGamer

Sorry I had to edit the price out of your post as it can be construed as price driving. :)

@Bas

I totally understand. :) I just thought I'd offer. I hope you find one soon.

Take care,

Heather

Thanks Heather.

I'm not sure what you mean by "price driving". I'm not selling anything - merely pointing out that Dragon Micros haven't been particularly expensive just recently on other auction sites.

@TheCorfiot: Hope you find one soon. That sounds like an interesting project. I'm just awaiting delivery of a "Beeb-SID board". Another promising Acorn-related project which involves gutting a C64 (sacrilege?) for its famous sound-chip and re-purposing it in a more "flexible" Micro...

Owning 2 Acorn BBC B's and 3 Electrons, I'd be interested to hear more on your project - you'll need to let us know the gory details when you're ready to spill the beans... :whistle:

@UK

Yep,,, Good ole Tom Walker & MartinB over on Stairway to Hell...

MartinB is a thouroughly nice chap with some serious Skills & Tom is well known for his Emulators & his ability to come up with projects outside of the Box too..

Thanks for the Heads up on the Dragon,,,, I hope Heather's PM has answered your concerns, tbh I would have done the same had I come across it first, The edit is meant in good spirit to abide with our policies, It's not meant in a scolding way at all, The staff here are very friendly and here to help.

TC :)

BTW Most Beeb's were produced a few miles from where I live too.

I have a TRS80 Color Computer II

I have the computer, a "Introducing your colour computer" booklet and a "Getting Started with Colour Basic" book.

Am looking to trade if possible for a BBC model B - although a working model B motherborad would suffice.

Hi fb

Seems we both eventually found this thread in the end :LOL:

I am indeed interested in the CoCo, would be happy to discuss via PM.
Do you know if it is an 'Extended' or 'Std' Color Basic model ;)
Some piccies maybe nice, we always like hardware pr0n on here...:LOL:

Regarding Model B boards, the only spare I currently have is an Issue 3 which I was planning on hacking with the CoCo in an attempt to get the 6809 talking accross the tube....Let me have a thinky

The Model Number is 26-3134A which according to wikipedia makes it a 16K Standard model.

Here are a few pickies of it. (sorry about the quality)

Cheer's for the reply and piccies fb (y)

Not bad looking CoCo, I've got the firmware so could program an Extended Basic Eprom for it...

Having been through my Acorn bit's & pieces, I can't let the Issue 3 board go as it is all I have regarding spares & as mentioned it would be used as the 6809 tube testbed.

However, I can offer

A fully working Electron setup, ElK + PSU + All Manuals / books + Welcome pack.
If you are interested I can put some piccys up...

In any case please do hit me up on PM regarding how much you wish to sell the CoCo for.

Regards
TC :)
