vrf 9826 Calculator Bus Monitor

Question asked by VRFuser on Jun 6, 2006
An HP ThinkJet, model number HP 2225A, are on the used equipment market for $100 to $200 range and ink cartridges are still available for $15 to $25.

I had one and used it extensively when trying to figure out home some one else's program worked (programmer and source long gone).  Very useful way to bug a program and find out what is really going on.  Also a lot cheaper then a true GPIB analyzer.
