I am happy to report more progress...
The museum is set up and ready to begin provisioning and testing of the equipment. My sincere appreciation goes to the benefactors and patrons who have supported me with this project.
All of the test equipment is safely stored on sturdy 1500 lb. shelving. The Dataphone Digital Service (DDS) office equipment; plug-ins and test equipment is all in the relay racks. Power, connections and repairs need to be made. The parts cabinet, parts drawers, card catalog, parts, typing units and portable D-4 channel bank all are set up and bolted in position. The D-4 is now operational, but I need some later common units due to the false yellow alarm condition!
Donations of items are still coming in. On its way here from Pennsylvania is a 25 amp 48 volt DC power supply! If you find some of these old items, please do NOT throw them out! If you find any sources for supplies, please let me know who I can contact.
Soon the museum will be further remodeled, it was originally part of the driveway, then a dual carport, then a garage, and now a museum. 5 florescent light fixtures have been added. The walls will soon be insulated and covered with 5/8 inch drywall. One of the three garage doors will become a semi-permanent wall. the floor will be painted with grey porch and deck paint.
Any and all donations are appreciated. Thank you for your interest and support of the museum.
