Amaterske Radio - Spectrum Cloning Article

This article is taken from Amaterske Radio, a Czech amateur Radio magazine running from 1952-present.  This article is belived to date from January 1989.  It provides instructions in Czech on how to clone the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Vast numbers of copycat ZX Spectrums were made, most notably in Russia and Soviet-controlled areas of Europe, but also in a number of South American countries.  The qualities that made the Spectrum sell so well in the UK - simplicity and value - made it very appealing to foreign companies willing to break copyright as well as to users behind the Iron Curtain who wanted access to consumer technologies.

A copy of this manual is available for download and the photocopy is kept in our collection.  A few of the pages were missing upon donation.

Date : January 1989
