Kantronics Interface for Atari 8 bit with Hamtext Cart

Recommended Posts

I have here a Katronics Interface II that is used to interface an Atari 8bit with a hamradio. I have no way to test this stuff so it is being sold [b]AS-IS[/b]. I do not have an A/C adapter for this nor any cables to hookup it to a computer or hamradio. The manual is very detailed so I don't see a problem in making or obtaining those cables and power adapter. Also with the Interface is the Hamtext cart software. Included is the following:

Katronics Interface II
Hamtext Cart
User Manual for both the Interface and the software
The original boxes for the Interface and software

I searched the Internet for more information on this stuff or the rarity and haven't found much of anything. Everything is in good condition, the Interface is missing one rubber foot on the bottom. Therefore, I'll entertain any offers. Here is my feedback http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/169150-99er-forever/

Not sure about how much it would cost, but the box is a kind of modem that translates data from the computer into packets for other packet users to intercept and decode using a similar setup. AFAIK it uses the same settings you would set as use on any modem; handshaking, start/stop bits, all that. Still usable hardware in today's radio world.

But I cannot say much about the price. I have seen a range of prices on packet stuff go from a few cents per part to hundreds of dollars, regardless of vintage, make/model.

/edit Also seeing that it would take a lot of cable making to get it hooked up to a radio and then the computer. I will pass it on to the radio users I know. Edited by nathanallan
