Alex and I have our own Heathkit corner at VCF!  Exhibits open tomorrow and continue Sunday, but a few interested early birds came by today. Expect a long couple of days…

Wow!

What a set up. Look at all those H8s and that nice looking H9! Nicely done Glenn. Keep the pictures coming.

If you get a chance throw up my Warlords game. As I said before it was a clone of the actual Arcade game by Atari (and also on the Atari VCS!). If anyone knows of the arcade game (or VCS version) I think they'd be quite impressed with what can be done on these old Heathkits with a color graphics card. Not to brag but the Heathkit version is way better than the Atari VCS version I think.

Enjoy the exhibit and have fun!

 

Thanks,

Alex Bodnar sporting his vintage VCF tee shirt and Hugger button


Here’s me doing my David Sarnoff imitation (the real deal is on the wall behind me)


Good day today. Lots of interest. The large LED display and Big Blue helped draw in the customers!  Many people lamenting having gotten rid of their old Heathkit gear years ago. Others seem to be newly inspired to dig out old equipment and get it running.

A great display, Dave! Someday, I'll have to make the trek to VCF East. :-)

VCF Midwest 16 looked to be quite extensive. Anyone here go?
