Default Dinosaur Designs Test Card Generator

Hello. I have a Dinosaur Designs Standards Converter and Test Card Generator. In the latter I only have Test Card F. I would like to add other test cards, particularly "C". Does anyone know if the EPROMs, or the binaries for them are still available? I can read and program EPROMs so just the binaries would be useful.
Thanks
Colin

I'd get in touch with David Grant (the designer) if I were you via www.murphy-radio.co.uk

As a follow-up to the above post, I contacted Dave earlier and this was his response:

"Colour testcard generators require modification to produce monochrome (625-line only) images'. They will need to be RTB but I can still do it."

Whoa, hang on a minute, you have EPROMs with TCF in it? Is it broadcast quality? I would like a copy of those!

Just looked at the website, I see. It's an old hobby project. Cool nonetheless. Does a lot with very few components!

Thank you. Looking through my paperwork it seems that my generator has already been modified by Dave as it also has a monochrome test card (TCC) EPROM pair in it which works ok. I have messaged Dave as you suggested.

Could these EPROM images be posted for the benefit of other Members please?
