Re: Commemorating member #1500

Well, the quest for a disk drive mounting bracket is over... I purchased a complete (sans memory) and working Sunblade 100 for $5.00USD on eBay. With the $20.00USD shipping fee I figure I got my bracket for $25.00USD and it came wrapped in a Sunblade 100. :wink: Now my 120GB disk is happy and secure...

WTB: Sunblade 100/150 Disk Drive Mounting Bracket

I wasn't sure if I should have posted this request in the Hardware section or not, but as it is Sun specific, I decided to try here. I recently purchased a Sunblade 150 and I guess for "national security reasons" :shock: there was no hard drive included. However, whoever removed the drive ...

Yes. It does support SOG, but works at 1920x1080_72 only with my V8. 1920x1200_60 can't be streched to fit the full width horizontially, it has the same width as 1600x1200 and doesn't look _that_ good :(. Maybe a new VFO could help? Roland but 1920x1080 is fine too ;) Roland- Thanks for your feedba...
