OH, sorry, I got them mixed up, I thought YOU had one
running there! Geez, I wouldn't think it would be all that
hard to get a KA10 running, just a LOT of discrete
transistors. A couple guys at Wash U got a Linc running a
few years ago. Mostly all they had to do was put new
capacitors in the power supply. Of course, I know there's a
LOT more logic in a KA10.
I'm pretty sure I have heard of some KA10's running,
somewhere, in the last decade, but that could be apocryphal.
