Who has 6 Falcons ?!

I don't need one, I have my original I purchased in the 90s, plus another I bought a couple years ago for testing kits out on... People always after Falcons though, just they tend to go for like £800+ which is madness really.

Well yeah, this guy with all the falcons likes to get inflated prices for them too.

Infact, I was skint, so I bought his 'cheapest' one, which had problems with the DSP subsystem.

ATM its basically a boosted STE with better resolutions/colours! :lol:

At some point I need someone to do the repair... Was sort of hoping you'd have a look sometime in the future.

Willing to pay...or trade parts! :lol:

I've fixed a fair few falcons lately. Other than the one I have here now, someones blown up every chip on the board somehow :roll:

DSP chips and SRAM I think only BEST sell them, so likely is with those, but I can investigate anyway. Though I send stuff off now to a company to repair larger SMT chips these days. I tend not to do much soldering here anymore as have bad fingers :(

Nice find dhedberg!

Chris, if I do send you the F030 board, I will also give you a write up on whats been done and any points that Ive noticed to bring you up to speed and save you time.

Perhaps, while Im at it I will also send you a rough list of the Atari bits that I have as discussed earlier, so you can have a quick look to see if theres anything you want before I put it up here.
