Very interested visitors at the “Bugbook Historical Microcomputer Museum” from the Virginia Tech Amateur Radio Club on Friday. The group arrived at 5:30 and we talked and looked at historical microcomputers until 9:30 – just a great time sharing my stories during the start up days of microcomputers..
On Friday, May 2, 2014, members of the Virginia Tech Amateur Radio Association went to Floyd, VA to visit the Bugbook Microcomputer Museum and the N4USA amateur radio station. The Bugbook Computer Museum is owned and curated by Dave (KK4WW) and Gaynell (KK4WWW) Larsen. Dave, retired from Virginia Tech, has been collecting computers for over forty years. While at Virginia Tech, he used microcomputers to transform data collection techniques in the chemistry department. He also was part of a team that authored an edited a series of books about computing and electronics known as Bugbooks.
