Default Replica MK14 PCBs

I found this flagged up over on the vintage computer forums and thought it might also be of interest to some here.

Over the years the idea of reproduction Science Of Cambridge MK14s has been approached from various angles. There is, for example, Karen O's open-source PIC14 hardware MK14 emulator.

There was also a majorly redesigned MK14 'tribute' from 'MK14man' quite a while back, and there have been a couple of individuals who went down the road of trying to reproduce the original MK14 PCB, originally just to build their own replicas.

One of those individuals now seems to be producing replica MK14 PCBs in small batches and making them available for sale, see here.

Unfortunately the translation from the original Czech is not too good, but the gist of it seems to be that he can supply PCBs, a remanufactured late version MK14 keypad and a pair of PROMs programmed with the 'SCIOS' monitor (either version) - finding the rest of the parts including the SC/MP processor and INS8154 I/O-RAM IC (if required) is up to you.
