Also, if anyone has original documents for the card, they would help ALOT. --- Sam Laur <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > There seems to be something about it in GO64! issue > 01/99 but > I don't have it (and it's one of the issues missing > from GO64! > online). > > Anyway, I'll do a full translation of the C=Lehti > 1/88 article > later, here are some of the more important (?) > points in the > article, about running the thing. > > There are three trimresistors on the thing, one with > a red knob > attached to adjust the module speed, and two to > adjust > synchronization to the C64.
