10 years ago, when decent NTSC monitors were still occasionally available,
this board may have been usable.
However, finding a monitor that can accept NTSC signals, either as
composite (spit) or RGB is today strictly a stumble over, pay your money,
and chances are the capacitors are shot in the scan causing all the smoke
to be let out 1/2 an hour after you turn it on, or has a bad crt, dim &
with another image burned into it.
So today, if we need a fresh monitor, we by a cheap LCD, and one of Roy
Justices scan doubler boxes, which work fairly well.
"There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty:
soap, ballot, jury, and ammo. Please use in that order."

I don't believe there really IS a GAS SHORTAGE.. I think it's all just
a BIG HOAX on the part of the plastic sign salesmen -- to sell more
