Southwest Missouri Amateur Radio Club

Vintage Computing

The SMARC Board has approved adding in the Vintage Computing sub-interest group to SMARC! We’ll get more info in the coming days but we’re excited to see where this takes us. With so many overlaps of interest with ham radio operators and vintage computer enthusiasts, and the inevitable repairs that have to be made to vintage systems with soldering and component level diagnostic, it was a match made in heaven for the two interests to join together.

We have quite a bit of equipment gathered up to start the ball rolling on getting people introduced, or reintroduced, to some of the most classic systems of the 70’s 80’s and 90’s. Lots of info and work will be done during Q1 and Q2 Tech Day’s for 2023 (Q1 being January 28th), so come out and join us to see what all we can break!

As of right now, we plan to meet each month on the Wednesday before the SMARC meeting. We’ll need to get in front of the body of the club to vote on a few details, but so far that seems to be the winner!

We’ll update this page as we continue to develop this group and come up with exactly what the end result will be.
