I’m still alive. I know it’s been almost a month since my last update. Sorry. I took a much deserved break and vacation to visit family in Phoenix Az. Once I land a job I doubt I’ll be able to get out there for a year or so. One of the things I’ll miss from my old job is the built up vacation time I had. So that took about ten days. The last week has been spent recovering and taking care of problem areas. Doing some spring cleaning and filing for unemployment.
Oh…. but this is a XF551 update post. Sorry I don’t have a lot to report. So far the current status is that I have a working modern power supply version prototype. I have been working on getting an original power supply version working. I think I’m just about there. I’ve also been working on designing and building the modifications board and front panel display. As well as the alternate OSC circuit since the 8.3333 MHz OSC isn’t exactly common. I wanted to prove that I am still working on this. Thank you for your patience.
