Hi Jon,

thanks for your mail - the Alert looks interesting (I also collect such
vintage Ex-MIL gear).

Do you have got any pictures of the unit and the CPU card set?
Of course it uses core memory, right?

Will post my collection list, too...

    Keep working on the Alert ;-)

        Best regards,
