HARDWARE - Meeting September 17, 1975
The meeting on the 17th was another exciting one with plenty of hard¬ware on display. Included were several Micro-68 units from Electronic Product Associates, Inc., 1157 Vega street, Sari Diego, CA 92110. Weatherford is the distributor. This is a neat microprocessor primarily for training, prototype, and system design uses. The SPHERE group took time out from Wescon and demonstrated their equipment at the meeting. Along with their SPHERE 1 computer system they demonstrated a very impressive color graphics display. For more information contact SPHERE Corp., 791 South 500 West, Bountiful, Utah 84010. We received a first 1ook at a system due soon from M&R Enterprises, Post Office Box 1011, Sunnyvale, CA 94088. Perhaps Marty Spergle will give us more details soon. Ken McGinnis had his repackaged ALTAIR set up. He used a Cybercom case very effectively. Another computer system called JOLT was demonstrated by Lynn B. Smith, Microcomputer Associates Inc., 10440 North Tantau Avenue, Cupertino, CA 95014. Lynn put the final touch to the meeting by selecting a name from member address cards turned in during the meeting and giving away a JOLT kit. Dan Wallace was the winner. This kit will be delivered at the next meeting. With activities like those described here you should plan to attend the club meetings and get the latest computer information.
Scott Spencer suggests a poster that could be put up to spread the word about the club. This is a great idea. Now, we need a poster artist. Who will fill this need? Tell me your ideas.
