Hi From JohnK in London - Camputers Lynx Collector

Mensajepor JohnK » 28 Dic 2020 01:27

Hi everyone,

Just a quick intro on me. I'm John, from London. I've been on the Lynx scene for about 35 years now. I've known many people from the scene over the years and made some contributions, and I look forward to making some more here.

I have a full setup of the Lynx systems, including 48K, 96K and 128K systems, including disk drives and a HxC. I work closely with my friends Pete and Frank who have made some great contributions to this forum.

I look forward to releasing more of my archives, with help, and I'm currently scanning blueprint circuit diagrams which came straight from the company.

In the meantime, I'm trying to catch up of the posts in the fantastic series of forums.

Kind regards,

John

Hi and welcome to the forum John :-)

That sounds really exciting!, some of us are still dreaming with a 128K Lynx recreation... ;-)

Welcome !! I've got a 48K and a 69K both not working :(

Perhaps the information you will share will help me in repairing them :)

What do you mean by a "128K Lynx recreation"? Do you have a 128K Lynx already?

Thanks Ron. I recall some of your videos on Youtube from some years ago. I look forward to seeing more of what's been happening recently?

Sadly not -no
Years ago there was some interest about trying to create a new Lynx 128K PCB. Frank's site mentioned this project and some of us let our imagination fly too much...:roll:

I actually supplied Frank with an original 128K pcb and I do still have some more. Unfortunately, they are currently out of my reach. When I do eventually regain access to them, would you like one to be reserved for you?

Sure, It would be great!; but it would be better to have the schematic ported to Eagle, Kicad or any other tool, maybe Frank has it already converted?

Welcome JohnK

I really like the lynx, even more I have the lynx I and II, I hope one day to buy in an everdrive and change the screen, but not everything with everything, it is the dilemma when it is a multi-system of computers or videocomputer -drinks
