Jeff: suggest you join the SEBHC list.  we're a very active group supporting the H8 and H89.  Lots of expertise there including former employees of Heath and the supporting vendor community.


strong signal to noise ratio on the list.

We have an extensive library of disk images but it's always worth archiving more.  Come to that list or contact me off the VCF list for more details on how to capture the images you have and/or resources and pointers to get your '89 humming.
