Paul,
I have missed part of a thread somewhere ... Addressing the mod for the
2000C.  I would like to find out a bit more about what you have done.  Could
you point me in the right direction?  Thanks.
Tom

Quite right its 3 digit thats why I built a mod for the 2000c using a SXb
micro single chip itty bitty 4 digit GRI generator. Total cost $5 in parts
and its not a kit. Just a chip dip switch and reset button.
A fellow in Italy is using it with a 2000c as am I.
Just hate to waste great gear because of cheap politics.
Regards
Paul.
