Back in the day, I remember some VIC-20 stuff, too (since at the time
the C-64 was
running $400-$600, a bit too expensive to put in dedicated use, but
the VIC-20 was
under $100). If I had any part numbers, I'd give them; I just
remember folks with
VIC-20s and external TNCs at the Dayton Hamvention.
Essentially, stuff for the user port should be portable between the
two, like the
C= RS-232 cart. ROM cartridges, though, are entirely specific to each model
(totally different memory maps and physical connectors).
