Hello Wally,

I had to install and support several BW-Installations in Schleswig-Holstein, and every Installation consist of a NCR-499 with the Label "M05" on it - strange!

I never was trained on a 399. What were the differences between the 399 and the 499? I guess the main difference were the ball print head on the 399 against the matrix print head on the 499?

The collegues from the former NCR-Branch Hamburg (ALL collegues (cash registers, medium sized EDP, Mainframes)) meet every two years to talk, refresh their memorys, to drink and mainly to eat "Grünkohl" (is there a corresponding word in English?). This year this meeting is end of February, and there I will meet Klaus Mahl and tell him about our postings.

Best Regards
Heiko

Hi Heiko,
as far as I can remember the printer was the main-difference 399 - 499.
"Grünkohl" is "curly kale" or just "kale".
Give my regards to Klaus.
Best regards Wally.

Hi, from Japan.
 I appreciate your introducing notes of activities in Germany.

 I have an asking whether or not you can confirm your colleagues who are Ham Radio hobbyists have any information of a old transmitter 'IC-700T' manufactured by ICOM, Japan. Because I am looking for it.

 Recently from Germany I got a vintage analog-type receiver 'IC-700R' manufactured for Germany by ICOM in June, 1969, when I was a trainee as a junior systems analyst in NCR-Japan, Tokyo. As my memorial radios in 1969, I would like to set up a pair of receiver and tranmitter on my desk.

 Will you please let me know your idea?
Best regards,
Katsuhiko Hirai, exNCR software engineer.

Hi Katsuhiko,
my active time in Ham-Radio was in the 1980s in Bermuda. I used to have an Icom 720A.
Sorry I don't know anybody, who has information on an IC-700T.
Best regards, Wally.

Here you can find more info on the IC-700T

Here is an old pic of my ham-shack.

Dear Wally,

  I appreciate your kind advise with a nice ham-shack corner photo.
I could find the Heathkit Antenna Tuner, Daiwa Antenna Tuner CNA 1001, and IC-710A.
Because recently I got them from Japanese Yahoo auction, too,  and got Collins HF-2050 receiver that had designed as the original 1st version of SDR during early 1980s.
Unfortunately, I am still now preparing to restart my radio hobby again since my moving to Nara from Yokohama.
Some day, I am sure to communicate with you in Germany, through wireless method.
Best regards, Katsuhiko
