Thanks for the fast welcome! I'll make sure to take pictures of that clone under every possible angle if I do see it someday!

Hi, I'm Richard and my first computer was a 48K+. I love reading about and playing spectrum games, these days I only play on an emulator. Sometime I would like to buy a real spectrum, but living in the USA makes using a real one a little more tricky.

Big shout out to Fusion Retro Books/Magazines and The Spectrum Show. Great content! :D

Thanks

Rich

Yep welcome @rdhcook !

If you're still looking for a real speccy I can sell you this beautiful 48k mod for, say, £1000 :?

As they say on eBay: It's untested but it should work.

Hi to the community from Portugal.

My name's Francisco, and I have recently acquired my first Speccies, an issue 2 M332 with plastic keyboard, assembled by Timex Portugal, and an issue 6B.

Both have gotten new keyboard membranes, but the 6B is behaving erratically. So I hope I can get some more knowledge.

Cheers!

Hi everyone,

I'm Andy and I live in Durham.
I've spent the last 32 years as a electronics engineer, 22 of those years were spent in the Royal Navy.
I've got back into retro computers after losing interest in my previous hobby of model railways.

I have about 25 computers in my collection now including the first two computers I ever owned as a lad. A ZX81 and ZX Spectrum +. Both of which still work 32 years after being put away for the last time. For some reason (which I forget) the ZX81, and its Memotec RAM and Keyboard expansion are missing ther cases. In my collection I have a working QL, 48K and 16K rubber keyboard Spectrum's, another ZX81 (in a case this time :lol:) and a ZX80 which I got off Ebay for £45 in non working condition. Which at present is being restored.

Anyway looking forward to taking part in the discussions.

Kind regards
Andy
