Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

The buffer can also use the full 32K of the RAM board, and can replace any of the buffers in the BBC Micro such as printer, RS423, or speech.

This board is boxed and is complete with manual, EPROM, and standoffs.
