Just sitting here having a few beers with the soldering iron out.
(Adding the switches for the rom selector. I'm hiding them under the cart port.
1 SPST selects chip enable, turn it off and no more built in dos rom.
2 SPST select 16k bank
3 DPDT with off position, select lower 32k region with no autostart (pins 7 and 8 on the cart), select upper bank with no autostart, and select upperbank with autostart.
Coconet and Drivewire on the lower half, Dungeons Of Daggaroth / Arkanoid on the top half.
At least this is what I hope it will do when I'm done.
Was trying to add video and audio out to the same daughter board while I was at it. I can come back and add that later.
Have fun and enjoy the family.

look and see if he may have mixed something up when he put them into EAGLE
from the hand drawn ones. I think they were tested on the CoCo 1 which has
the MC1372 on the mobo... John assumed they'd work with the CoCo 2 which has
the 1372 in the RF can - let me check and i'll get back to you. I am sitting
here putting together a data separator out of flip-flops, VCO and phase
detector (the 9216B's seem hard for me to find so i'm looking at a discrete
