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.

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.

Hello Aleks,

my Congratulation for the 10th anniversary of the The Core Memory Project!

I did'n find too much information about NCR in the Net - for IBM and others you will find a lot. But you collected over the years piece for piece a really lot of interesting information about our former company and its products.

"The Core Memory Project" shows what a great producer of sophisticated hard- and software the company was - worldwide!

You did a great work - thanks a lot and again - my Congratulation!

All the Best

Hi Terry,

thanks for your reply!

I wrote about the young man who teached us the 615-100 processor. His forname was Tom. He drove a red Triumph TR sportscar - after work we used to travel with this nice car through the streets of London. Can you remember his last name?

I wrote about an elder experienced man from Scotland who teached us the 615-200 processor (not a member of the ITEC staff). Did you remember his name?

Is it possible that the teacher for the century magtapes was Paul Vincent (it was his first course)?

Best regards

Hello Heiko
Good to hear from you and your memories of those days at the ITEC on the
North Circular Road.  I remember the incident when I walked into your classroom and
started speaking about the Printer, it was to see how far I could get before someone among the students would
correct me and let me know that it was not the subject they expected. Happily it was not too long before
I was reminded that I was teaching the wrong material.
They were very happy days

Sadly Joe Fry died some years ago, As for Tom Baldwin, Dudley Lowe and Dave Lewis they are all now retired from working, I know Dudley lowe is still with us but have no idea of the status of the others
Soon after 1072 the ITEC was relocated to Dundee in Scotland which was a disaster and very unpopular

Hi Terry,

i thought about the men who teached us the 615 Tape drives (i remember the "egg crate" ....).

It is possible that his name was Paul Vincent or so??

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.

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
