I'm not sure I've heard of Caldisk, though it was in Anaheim 
apparently.  Maybe a Calcomp brand or spinoff?

Here is an ad also for the Matchdisk operation who pasted their info all 
over the drive.

8" double sided drive, 479 bucks in the 1981 Infoworld ad.


Also I'm wondering if the "Matchmakers match of the month" system which 
they can't tell you about is in fact NoName systems generic CPM system.

I never heard of this operation in all the things going on in that time 
frame (Matchmaker) but they seemed to be marketing to people who were 
less skilled at fitting things like third party floppy drives to 
systems, yet this offering is clearly for someone with advanced skills 
at doing so.
