For disposal (free of charge) - Creed 75, CV89

Graham, who was a member of BARTG in the 1970s, tells us that he has two items separately available for disposal (free of charge). They are:

  1. A Creed teleprinter type 75R Mk2 complete with gears for 50 and 75 Baud.There is a small roll of paper in the printer but the ink tape has probably dried up. It does not have a keyboard.
  2. An ex USA naval CV89/URA/8A frequency shift convertor together with a part built frequency convertor so the printer can be run at 75 baud and slower speeds are switch selected and raised using a FIFO chip. This is meant to be fitted into the CV89.

Graham writes  "The units have not been used since 1979 but with a simple wire aerial feeding an AR88 receiver I did log a call sign from Pyonyang, North Korea".

These units are heavy so collection would be desirable. They are located a few miles south of Banbury.

Graham would very much like to keep these items out of the TIP


they will be going to the TIP at the end of March
if no-one wants either or both of them

Please contact Graham by email for more information about these items

==== Teleprinters Wanted ====

Teleprinters are STILL wanted. There seems to be a shortage of teleprinters (particularly Creed machines suitable for amateur radio use). There is an increasing interest in amateur radio RTTY using teleprinters rather than computers. 
In August 2017 (when this advert first appeared) I heard of three teleprinters (a Creed 75 and two Creed 444 machines) offered for sale and there seemed to be five or six people interested in them.
If you have a teleprinter suitable for amateur radio use and you no longer use it then please consider finding a new home for it.

You are welcome to advertise your teleprinter on this page. This page exists primarily to find new homes for unused teleprinters and other datacoms equipment. There is no charge to advertise on this page; BARTG's reward is to hear that a teleprinter or some other datacoms equipment has found a new home and - hopefully - comes back onto the air.

To place an advert please contact

New advert coming soon?

An advert on this page could be finding a new home for your unwanted datacoms equipment. It could be finding datacoms equipment that you want.
