  1. That's my first computer! And for only $100 more than the $49.98 price it came out for!

  2. HA! Mine too. I was real cheap and bought the kit. I tacked a cable just before the RF modulator to use a black and white CCTV video monitor.

    Anyone remember when Radio Netherlands broadcast a ZX-81 program over the air to be uploaded via tape to the little computer? There was so much phase and whatever other distortion that it was impossible to recover.

    That thing was sure fun to play with.

    73 from very West of Dayton.

  3. God, now I feel old! Timex Sinclair 1000 was actually my *third* computer. I got a ZX (before Timex bought Sinclair Computer), then spent about half of the money from boot camp on an Atari 800, before buying one of these.
