    AES was always good to me, and I gave them my business. When I bought my TS-450 around 1993, the salesman talked me out of buying the accessory DSP unit!! That's an honest rep.

    I know I bought my Coco 2 around mid November '83 as I bought it about two weeks after my Novice license showed up. It was featured in a sales circular and it seems as though it was less than $200 by the time the new '84 catalog was out with a much higher price tag! The catalogs were usually out around this time of year for the next year, as I recall. Computer prices were starting to free fall about that time.

    The Coco 2 appears in the '84 catalog for $320 for 16k extended color BASIC: http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/html/1984/h178.html
    and the Coco was still listed for $400 for 64k: http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/html/1984/h179.html

    Check out the Coco 2 64k upgrade for $150! Makes modern RAM modules a real steal!

    Here is the back page of the 1983 catalog featuring the Coco: http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/html/1983/h184.html

    I gave the Coco 2 away to a ham in the Enid, OK area in the mid '90s. He became a silent key some years ago and the Coco 2 is probably in a land fill.

    Same sorta thing happened to my X... In retrospect, I'm glad that she left me.

    My current YL is Japanese. They age well. She's 61 and looks 35.
