I'm going to put it on my list of projects to create a CPU card for my Microtutor that uses the 1802 instead I think. I can get some blue PCB stock. As far as I understand the 1802 is fully backward compatible.
Maybe the 1801s will show up on day. I've found all kinds of chips I was told were impossible to locate.

RCA 1801 disappeared from face of Earth forever... You would be better off to purchase at:

I just purchased an RCA Microtutor minus the rather important CPU card. I
can recreate the card but I expect locating the 1801 chips will be
difficult. I am just posting this in various forums in case anyone has any
leads on where I might find either the complete card or the required chips
to make a replacement. I'm wondering what, if any devices were built with
the 1801 that I might be able to scrounge from.
