PDP 11/05 Exhibit – a must hear

This weekend we added a circa 1972-3 PDP 11/05 minicomputer exhibit. This computer has BASIC stored in core memory and operates from a Teletype Model 33. After powering on the system, toggle in the correct address using the front panel and press START. You’ll notice the lights start blinking away as the 1970 Model 33 Teletype attached to the PDP 11/05 springs to life ready to take commands written in the BASIC programming language. If you want to save your program, activate the reader and a fresh papertape copy will be printed for you to retrieve again.

If you want to hear what vintage computing of the 60’s and early 70’s sounded like you have to experience this for yourself!
