Winky board II by G.Russell - Electronics

Post by makeit2day » Wed Apr 10, 2013 5:20 pm

I have a Winky board II by G.Russell - Electronics and I would like to find the wiring diagram for it
to understand how it works. Has any one seen the diagram for it and could it be posted on this site
if available.

Thanks.

There is talk about this on viewtopic.php?f=7&t=261.

I understand it is an interface to help improve the LOAD / SAVE signal.

Could you maybe upload some pictures?

I had the Winky II but have lost it over time. It was an interface that would help Save, Load and Copy (to another Cassette recorder) programs. I believe there also was software so you could speed up loading 4X. I could never get it to load at 4X speed though.

I actually knew G. Russell. He was the head of the Users Group at the college I went to. He was very innovative. He was working on adding color display to the ZX81. His idea was to flash characters on and off at different frequencies that matched the color spectrum.
