Heathkit Fans Recall Era of Do-It-Yourself Tech

One comment on “Heathkit Fans Recall Era of Do-It-Yourself Tech

  1. I have come acquired a Heathkit Box of an RTTY Software program, unopened and
    I do not want to open the box and ruin it’s value to collectors

    The only number on the box are there


    In the estate sale there was a unbuilt kit with an 8 inch disk drive that a ham friend of mine bought

    The box size is about 12″ X 12″ X 3″ thick

    I expect it is full of Floppy disks and a manual or instruction sheet

    I expect there may be 8 inch floppies in it as if they were 5 inch, why would teh box be so big ???

    Any info on contents and value appreciated
