After a hiatus due to government restrictions, SAUG met once again for a July 2020 meeting. Due to ongoing restrictions, we could only accommodate a limited number of people, but the meeting was still an enjoyable experience and it was great to catch-up again!
We had a few machines in action, including a Tandy 1000, a miniature XT, an Amiga 1200 and a Commodore 64.
Rod is preparing an entry for the upcoming Decrunch 2020 Demo party. Unfortunately his A1200 was a bit low on RAM but this was solved after disabling various drive partitions and the credit card slot!
Mick also brought along his Rainbow keyboard C64 complete with 1541-II floppy drive.
Lastly, Steve of C64 Robot Guitar Fame brought along his C64 and an oscilloscope which we used to demonstrate the analysis of composite video signals which are typical of a retro computer.
Below photos include Steve relaxing with his C64, collection of floppy drives sorted in chronological order, and display of a PAL composite signal generated by a C64 on an oscilloscope.
That’s all for this month! See you all again in August – hopefully with reduced restrictions!
