Retrochallenge 2016 – Setting up my stall.

On the eve of ‘challenge I have retrieved my VT-180 from the “shelf of good intentions”. I have taken photos of the two main boards and powered the machine up to see what happens.

Hmmm.

At the moment I don’t have the processor board in place as I think the VT side should come up without it. However, the current state of play is less than ideal.
