Thread: Bi-Tran Six

  1. #1

    Default Bi-Tran Six

    Anyone ever hear of a Bi-Tran Six trainer computer. I have a working unit that has actual working core memory. I power it up and se to run and all sorts of lights blink. There are 8 panels in it that can be raised to access test points. Everything seems to be working and it looks like something you may have seen in old 60's scifi movies. I was hoping to get more information on it as to figure out what I can do with it.

    Never heard of it. But, wow, I'd love to have a computer that uses core memory.

    I dunno, he might bit-slap me too, but when I first saw the header, that's exactly what I expected to find. Didn't know there was actually a vintage computer by that name.

    Default Yah I know

    Got the same thing when I tried to google it. I am not trying to lead anyone astray, that is just what it is called. Attached a file with picture of the unit, after dropping the size to fit looks a little grainy.
