HP 7978 protocol

Dear David Ruska,
I would be enormously grateful if I could also possibly please receive a copy of documentation for the HPIB/Amigo-type protocol used by the HP7978 tape drive - in any convenient format. This would be an end to months of desperate search! As a matter of interest, do you know if a hardware technical manual might also still be available? Frankly I'm pretty happy to pay for anything I can get hold of given how many hours with the logic analyser this will save! Many thanks.

Re: HP 7978 protocol

Send your email address to, and then I'll get get your mailing address and info, and send you a paper (xerox) copy of the HP-IB protocol manual.
The journey IS the reward.
