The 'real' H89 80 col display

Recommended Posts

John Lundy was kind enough to post a link to the H89 Heathkit emulator that he uses as a 80 column display on his Coleco Adam. I am running that on my Linux box but wanted to hook my Adam up old skool so i am using a real H89 Heathlkit for my Adam's 80 column display

I have the MIB serial port 2 connected to the H89's rs232 port and am running the Heath in terminal mode

The great thing about the heathkit is that you dont need COMM software since it has a built in terminal

The Heathkit is a nice computer but it has a hard sector disk controller and drive so making disks for it is not that easy.  Using it as a terminal seems like a good use for it until i can get a Gotek working with it
