Hi!

I'm looking to purchase a RS232 interface cartridge for my msx computer.

Thanks!

Hello Todd,

What a coincidence! I have one here. It is a modified, and very ugly Philips NMS 1250, I used it in combination with a PC modem ages ago. Are you interested in this?

Your images aren't working.
Maybe you can upload them to https://www.msx.pics

hmmm...Interesting.

Is that a standard RS232 serial port on the side of the cartridge? Basically I want to be able to use it with a regular serial modem or lantronix modem emulator.

Here are the pictures! Thank you, luppie!
I don't know if that is a standard RS232 port, I do know that it was quite common in the days of the 56k external modems. That's what I used this for. But in these days of GR8NET (and no more BBS'ses :-( ) I don't use it anymore.

Here you can find (in Dutch) some info on this cartridge : http://www.msxarchive.nl/pub/msx/docs/hwmodsetc/hanso/hwdoit...
(It used to be a modem, but it's modified to a rs232 interface)

How much shipped to the US are you asking for it?

Also, what telecom software is popular with the MSX to connect to BBSs?

What do you think about € 65 for the interface and shipping with insurance and track & trace? If the interface doesn't function, I pay for the return shipment and refund your money.

You can find BBS programs here: forum topic msx.org

Hmmm, let me think about that.
