Plotmate ROM

Post by MikeKee » Wed May 23, 2018 9:03 pm

Hi all

I won a BBC Master on thatEbay last week. Usual thing with the "this is not a language" error so fixed that with a new CMOS battery, cleaned it up and it's ready for resale, hopefully at a profit.

One thing intrigues me: on issuing *ROMS, in ROM slot 8 it states:

ROM 8 PLOTMATE A3 00

Anyone know anything about it?

Cheers

RobC

Most likely it's the control ROM for the Linear Graphics Plotmate A3 plotter.

More info here.

The plotter itself is fairly rare but I have seen them come up on eBay once in a while.
