Nice setup and some great suggestions. Thanks for sharing.
I don’t see one but I presume you use an RS-232 switch to share a single terminal with the three H8 systems?
The 8” heath floppy unit is their second generation 8” unit right? (Z207??) not the 47 (that was bigger with vertical drives that were unreliable as I recall?)
Your notes say that there are two 3.5” drives mounted in an H19? Is it really an H89? Or are you just using that as a convenient case/power supply for the drives, which connect to one of the H8s?
I had an old 4-way serial switch but the mechanism that “clicked” it into each position was broken (plastic piece) so I ended up just tossing it and buying a new one. Ironically at VCF there were a number for sale that I could have bought. Useful to have.
Interesting approach to “downgrade” an ’89 back to a ’19 and use the extra power and space for two drives!
It sounds like you’re very much still using floppy drives and disks. But your original re-engineering of the Z80 board included a GIDE interface. Is that still how you do hard disk op’s? still using a physical hard drive or one of the IDE-to CF/SD emulators?
