It is indeed. It's in good physical shape and will go towards completing my TRS-80 Model 1. I've already got a pristine main unit and an acceptable-looking expansion unit. All I need now is some badged drives or drive covers to have a complete system as it would have been purchased in the day.

You are right about the monitors. Unlike the computers themselves, badged monitors tended to get tossed when they stopped working so are not common now. Hopefully I'll be able to fix this one.

I'd be interested in what Microbee software you may have.

Hi - I'd have to have a look, there are quite a few tapes. Some are originals I think, others have been recorded by the user. Remind me to check titles if I don't get round to it soon. I'd be happy to give them away if someone wants them, but postage to Australia might be a bit expensive. I also have a Microbee-branded monochrome monitor, not as tidy as it could be but was in good working condition last time I checked. I hate to think what it'd cost to send that to Australia!

Many thanks, I'd be most interested in all the Tapes, I can fix you up for the postage :). I'm actually in the process of recording a heap of Microbee Tapes borrowed form a friend. Our collection continues to grow.

Yep, forget the monitor, postage would be way more than what its worth really. Its just a standard Composite Monitor, surely other vintage computers can use it?

Hi - I did find them but hadn't gone through them yet. No time like the present! They're labelled as follows:

Microbee Space Invaders
Electronic MicroBee Formular (incomplete)
MicroBee BeeDos
232 SP M
Eprom Version X3
Zen, Enhancement, Screen Editor
Nas 5.2, WDBE3, EDASM, Char64
Cheque
Nick's RS232
Letter W
RTTY/ASCII
SMON
Z80 Instruction Code and Meanings
RTTY
MicroBee SPU RS232
Basic Tutorial, Machine Code Tutorial
"Q" Word Processor EPROM version X3
Sprite, Misc, Sprite Collision
L Post TRX
L Post 5

Plus 10 unlabelled cassettes. I don't think any of them are originals, my memory must have been misleading me about there being some originals there. Any good to anyone? Happy to send them off, I have no use for them.

Yes, I'm still interested in them, there are few things there that are of interest. I've sent you a PM.
