Maplin ZX81 Voice PCB

Hi All, I have a Maplin ZX81 Voice unit for the I'm keen to test with my ZX81. It looks like I will need to build an expansion I/O board as I can't find any available. Has anyone else built their own DIY I/O board and has any recommendations or advice? Many thanks! :) http://i68.tinypic.com/zx8abr.j...

Re: ZXpand wanted

Hi,
Preferably a plus, as I'm interested in the extra I/O and MIDI possibilities I have read about, but happy with a classic.
Thanks

Hi All! I've arrived from over at Stardot and enjoy the friendliness and support over there too :) The research centre collection is just starting its collection but includes several BBC Micros, ZX81s, Spectrums, a Jupiter Ace and other bits and bobs including hundreds of old microcomputer magazines...

Re: ZXpand wanted

Hi! It's a research event for faculty and students at the University of Sussex in Brighton later this month, so sadly not a public event :( But if anyone local is kind enough to loan a ZXpand that would be great :)

ZXpand wanted

Hi All,
I was wondering if anyone has a ZXpand that they might be willing to part with, I am keen to buy one for an upcoming computing event that I would like to feature the ZX81. Happy to wait till they are back in stock but would love people attending the event not to miss out on the ZX81 :)
