Build Your Own Commodore C64 Computer!

The record breaking Commodore 64 computer that dominated the home computer market in the early 1980s is still going strong 40 years later!

Michael VK5LN who will talk about his experiences bringing back to life one of the iconic home computers of the 80’s, the Commodore C64! What’s more, he will show us how he has built a new C64 from scratch using the resources of the modern day retro-computing movement, which is very much alive in 2022!

During its production life there were a number of different PCB revisions and each has been reverse engineered and gerber files produced so you can build your own Commodore 64 with new components. While you still need some original semiconductors in order to home brew a Commodore 64, there are modern replacements to help out.

This stream will be part of the Amateur Radio Experimenters Group monthly meetings –
