Hi from Scotland,

I am looking for a fairly rare econet interface for acorn electron. Was made by Barson Computers and sold only in Australia and New Zealand markets (most likely education).

The interface fitted internally in an Acorn Plus 1 expansion so only telltale may be a round black econet (din) plug on rear of plus 1 beside printer port.

If anyone has one or sees one for sale etc. Please give me a shout.

Many thanks

Hi John,

I worked for Barson here in NZ for a while and I certainly didn't see one.
The Electron wan't that popular here.

I did a few econet installs, but all with BBC B's.
