This is a newsletter, it is not a magazine. Ten times a year we deliver a highly compact 4 - 8 pages of condensed, relevant,'timely information of value to users of pocket computers. This vital data is provided in a format that can be readily digested by the busy, important executive, engineer or professional in just a few minutes of brisk, interesting, informative reading. If you have hours to dawdle away each month, there are lots of magazines you can browse through. Yet, even if you were to read a dozen magazines a month, you would be unlikely to find all the relevant pocket computer information contained in each issue of The POCKET COMPUTER NEWSLETTER. Up to the Minute News If it has to do with pocket computers, we tell you about it. New product releases. Current prices. Industry speculation even an occasional rumor. Since we are a newsletter you get news fresh, not months after it happens as occurs with magazines. Our material is sent directly to you by first class mail Product...
What is the purpose of the ESFOA Newsletter NEWS The purpose of the ESFOA Newsletter NEWS is to provide a method of communication among the ESFOA, The purpose of this newsletter, therefore, is to allow members to share solutions to problems they have found and, in general, to allow owners to obtain information which will increase the usefulness of the Exatron Stringy Floppy as a mass storage subsystem for their computer system. Why is the ESFOA Newsletter printed in the 80 US Journal First of all the writing, editing, printing, and mailing of a newsletter is a big job which requires professional expertise. As you might guess, undertaking such an operation can be very expensive and it would be impossible to mail a free copy to all members. After a careful evaluation of all the other computer magazines, the 80 US Journal was selected as the most suitable media because of the high professional caliber of the articles published. Since the subscription rate for 80 US Journal is justified...
During the next two months you will see a few format changes in the Microcomputer Newsletter. We hope to institute several regular features, including FORT WORTH SCENE and TRS-80 CLASSROOM. We will also give you a short index for each issue, and publish an annual cumulative index. The first of these cumulative indexes will be published in the December issue, and will cover all newsletters published through December 1979. TRS-80 CLASSROOM will begin several series of articles designed specifically for users of Level I, Level II, TRSDOS, assembly language, and Model II. As soon as FORTRAN is released we will begin articles on FORTRAN as well. One other change which we will make is to begin a Volume , Issue format to help you keep track of Newsletters. Our thanks to Brian Jaffee of Trans-World Agency, Inc. for this suggestion. It is our intention to publish one Newsletter every month, and to make them something you will save for reference. We are removing direct advertising from the...
We are currently using the Tandy Newsletter on CompuServe to make program listings from TRS-80 Microcomputer News available to you without your having to enter them. We don't have the staff to create a tape or disk version of the News, but we can provide the listings on CompuServe. What you will find in the Tandy Newsletter (GO TRS-1 in CompuServe) are compact program listings (no extra spaces, etc.) which can be downloaded and run in the appropriate machine, assuming you have appropriate hardware and software. You will not find instructions, explanations or supporting material for the programs. This information is available in the appropriate issue of the News. We know that this is not a solution that every TRS-80 user will be able to take advantage of, but we want to make it available for those who can use it. We have also begun a feature on the CompuServe Tandy Newsletter which allows us to get corrections to published issues of the News to you very quickly. While we make every...

Some of you may be thinking, What the heck does FOG have to do with my Mod 4 Or did he mean SMOG . No, it's not a typo either. FOG is the short name for FOG International, located in Daly City. FOG began life as The First Osborne Group, a user group of Osborne owners. I believe all Osborneswere CP M machines, so you can begin to see where this genealogy is leading. When Osborne went belly-up, the user group survived, and encouraged membership by other CP M machine owners. As time went along, the IBM began to dominate, and so FOG opened its membership to IBM and its clones. They now even have some MAG owners. FOG issues two newsletters each month. One is named FOGHORN and is devoted to our CP M needs. The other is the FOGLIGHT and it is written for the IBM members. (Some members pay extra to receive both publications). Why join another group Enlightened self interest is probably the best answer. The advantages of FOG membership include access to a...
We decided to combine the January and February Newsletters in order to catch up ' We simply took the material for the two issues and combined them. This means that your March issue will be mailed nearer the first of the Month. We wish to remind you that the Microcomputer Newsletter has a new permanent section, currently called TRS-80 Product News. This will normally be a four page pullout section. Our intent is to make the Newsletter of general interest. We have to gauge what you want by what you tell us. Our purpose is to have SOMETHING in each issue for Level I users, Level II non-Disk users, Level II Disk users, and Model II users.

The program MAIL allows me to print mailing address labels for up to 105 names and addresses. Before loading or entering MAIL, type PCLEAR 1 or POKE 25, 6 NEW to ensure sufficient memory. Basically MAIL is an expansion of the Inventory Shopping List (ISL) program on page 295 of the Color BASIC Manual. Also, several finer features of MAIL were inspired by previous newsletters. I'm still refining MAIL, but I have used this version to print address labels for our Christmas card list and several non-profit club's mailing lists. The equipment and supplies I use to run MAIL are
Why would anyone in the TRS world care about the quirks of this 1.2 Meg IBM drive Consider. The drive inherently has the capability of reading and writing 80 tracks at 300 RPM, which is the format of our TRS 720K disks. IBM does not support the 720K format, but the 1.2 Meg drive can do it Some Australians have done it, and reported in various newsletters of their success. This allows them to buy readily available IBM 1.2 Meg drives and use them where scarce, practically unavailable 80

This month's Newsletter is devoted to getting started in computing, so I thought I might share my experiences in getting started with you. I know there are a good many new TRS-80 owners out there, as we just had a great Christmas season. So as you try to read those pages in the manuals and make some sense out of it all, you might take some comfort in knowing it used to be much worse. Additionally, there is the TRS-80 Microcomputer News, which has gone from four brown pages, to the rather slick product you are reading now. The Newsletter is your product. We depend on you for a great deal of what we print, and we need your comments to help guide us. We especially want the Newsletter to help you, the brand new owners, to learn to use your computers effectively. And while we have come a long way, we still believe we have a long way to go. We are always looking to improve those first few tough hours you spend with your new TRS-80. I sure wish there had been a Newsletter when I was getting...

I have just purchased your new product, the Line Printer 7 and I am truly overjoyed about it and I would like to pass on a few hints about this fantastic printer. First off, I would like to remind the readers of this newsletter that the seven is a GRAPHICS PRINTER Because of this, I designed this program to produce an actual screen printer. All of the other routines printed the content of the screen with ASCII characters, or a black on white picture. I would like all of you Line Printer Seven owners who also have a Model I or III to try out this routine
We blew it In the May newsletter we gave you a list of instructions to modify version 1.0 of Accounts Payable. The change was to the APCHECKS BAS program, and was supposed to change the program from pointing to Align Checks after you have updated vendors to point to Return to Main Menu. That was what it was supposed to do. In fact the instructions we gave were to change a corrected version of the program back to pointing to Align Checks Here are the correct instructions
The following program is quite a bit fancier than the program we published in the March April Newsletter. Using this program, you can input a value in any of four bases (Binary, Octal, Decimal, or Hexadecimal) and immediately see the same value in the other three bases. We have used this on Models I, II and III with no problems. Changes needed to make this work in an Extended BASIC Color Computer are shown after the program listing. 10 CLS

Collected Algorithms, Algorithm 201. This algorithm is similar to the straight insertion sort, except that instead of comparing adjacent items, comparisons are made on items that are separated by an increment that diminishes with each pass. One version of this algorithm appeared in Tandy Newsletter Volume No. 9, May June 1980, and is reproduced below, with modified driver and variable names.
A non-SIG informational product close to the heart of TRS-80 users is the Tandy Newsletter This selection offers information on product availability, hints and tips on equipment use, product descriptions and its own Feedback section where our customers can communicate directly with Tandy headquarters for the answers to their questions.

Besides writing articles for Soft-side, 80 Micro, and the other TRS-80 publications, Dr. John is the former, long-standing editor of the Interface, the newsletter of the San Gabriel Valley Tandy Users Group (SAGATUG), and we thank him for his kind permission to reprint this article.

I am writing to let you know how much I have enjoyed your newsletter and also to comment on Dave McGlumphy's sorted directory program which was printed in your July issue. RADIO SHACK has my permission to print any part or all of my letter in their newsletter. I hope that there it will be of some aid to other TRS-80 users. Keep up the good work
Editor's comments No one on the newsletter staff is familiar with eigenvalues. However, it is obvious that not all matrixes will be in a form to allow you to use the above routine. Therefore we dug down into our stack of programs and found an eigenvalue program for the pocket computer which appears to be less restrictive than the one above.
The Radio Shack Computer Assisted Reading Development Program (C.A.R.D.), adapted from the Philadelphia Computer Assisted Reading Development Program, is the first of Radio Shack's lesson offerings for use with the TEACH and STUDENT modules of AUTHOR I. C.A.R.D. 1 Sentences (cat. No. 26-2603) requires a 48K Model III system with at least one disk drive. Either TRS-80 AUTHOR I (26-1727) or the TRS-80 AUTHOR I Lesson Presentation Package (26-2707) may be used to present the C.A.R.D. lessons and to set up lesson score files. For more information on the C.A.R.D. 1 Sentences program, read the article on C.A.R.D. also in this month's newsletter.
I am the newsletter editor for the Mid-Cities TRS-80 Users Group which is nestled between Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas in the city of Arlington. One of my duties is to collect the club's mail. I like that job because I get to TRSTimes first. We just got your May June issue and I was reading Maurice Superville's letter. On the part where he was asking about wildcard copying for his BASIC files, you answered that TRSDOS 1.3. was not capable of this. I must call your hand. This DOS does have a wildcard-like COPY function.
If you are using the BASIC MENU from the March newsletter, make the last command line BASIC MENU instead of M. You could also make the DO files (especially the UP-DOWN sort options) some of your Menu select options. For example, SYSTEM DO ASCEND or SYSTEM DO SINGLE. So much for Profile II for this month. It seems that every month, when it comes time to work on my input for the newsletter, Profile II or Scripsit usually end up being the subjects. Next month I will try to put both of these on ice and cover a few of the other Model II products.

This service features the Mainstream News, a monthly newsletter about mainstreaming hearing, impaired students into regular schools. It contains articles for teachers, tutors, guidance counselors, speech therapists, parents, and students.
And last, but surely not least, we (the Microcomputer News) would publish entire sections in our newsletter dedicated solely to the bugs, errors, and fixes for each software package, under its respective model as we became aware of them during the course of a given month. As an aside, you may have noticed, with the January issue that the various Bugs, Errors and Fixes sections have now become one section in the News, subdivided by model.

INV is a compendium of advice and information about investment and trading opportunities, particularly, but not always, in the stock market. The services selected are mostly newsletters written by one person and thus reflect the outlook of that person. The INVESTOR PROTECTION REPORT is a biweekly newsletter on the safety of your investments. Investing your money in the multitude of innovative investment options available today takes study and continuous effort. One of the primary factors to consider when making investment decisions is the relative safety of a potential investment. Safety is often the forgotten component of most investment decisions. There is very little information available about safety considerations that affect investments. In an era when financial institutions are failing almost daily, when brokerage firms are going under at a record rate, and when personal bankruptcies are at an all time high, there is an obvious need for this type of information. The INVESTOR...

Retail Prices in this newsletter may vary at individual stores and dealers. The company cannot be liable for pictorial and typographical inaccuracies. Another way you can help us is to accurately tell the operator your subject. Do not say, I have a problem with my Model III, if the subject is software, as you will be sent to the hardware group. Say, I have a problem with my Model III General Ledger. Remember, we have specialists for each machine, as well as different people for applications software and language software. Also, remember we have specific telephone numbers for different subjects (as printed in the Customer Services section of the Newsletter). I got a very angry call this week from a man who called the All Other Calls number and was sent to the Model III hardware group when his subject was a software problem. That hardware group was very busy that day so he waited a long time, only to be transferred to the right group. Our call records show that at the time he called,...

Its author continues to add features, printer drivers, data sheets, and newsletters that make it the best supported word processing program available for the TRS-80. n 80 Micro. August 1963
Since variable swapping techniques have been at issue in the past few newsletters, I would like to add one of my own. This subroutine works with any two single precision, double precision, integer, or string variables. It will not work with arrays as it is presented here. Only two prerequisites are required
Here we are at the end of our first forty-eight page per issue year. Thumbing through the last year of Newsletters, brings to mind the many changes that have taken place. 1982 saw Bill Barden's series of articles on 6809 assembly language for the Color Computer begin in February as did our two for one media exchange program for user submitted material on tape or disk (not to mention CompuServe).
CompuServe customers receive, in addition to current market reports and commentary, educational and informational material on future trading plus special announcements from Archer Commodities.

Notes on Previous Newsletters Retail Prices in this newsletter may vary at individual stores and dealers. The Newsletter staff has been after me for some time to increase their budget and the size of the Newsletter. So I did a little begging and over the next few months you can expect to see the Newsletter grow in pages and features. I won't steal their headlines, so watch for developments which I think will make you agree that the Newsletter is a great deal at only 1 an issue.
It announces a Block Buster sale on line Printer IV. This unit, which regularly sells for 999.00, is available for 699.00. A saving of 300. The LP IV is off the shelf in the warehouse. Why wait to join the fun This printer and SCRIPSIT are an excellent entry level word processing duo. I've seen some very good looking newsletters produced with these two products.
One very large benefit which we will be able to provide by going to the subscription basis is the use of First Class Mail. At present we mail the newsletter fourth class, and we have had a great number of problems with incorrect addresses, undelivered newsletters, etc. We feel that this move will help to provide you with better service and more timely information. Our major advertising efforts in the newsletter will continue to be limited to the Product News section. This does not mean that we will not mention products elsewhere, but we will try to keep mentions in the body of the newsletter to news rather than advertising.

I found the Nov-Dec issue filled with helpful Information, even though I have had prior programming experience. My TRS-80 system has 32K, a single disk drive and a Model 33 Teletype for hard copy. I have both the Small Systems Software printer interface and the TRS-80 Electric Pencil Word Processor. I am working on obtaining a Selctric to take advantage of the word processing capability of my system and would appreciate some articles concerning modifications and software drivers. Keep up the good work.
For a variety of reasons, including a lack of suitable modems in particular, the appearance of user group bulletin boards in Australia has considerably lagged behind events in the United States. We have been trying to add this service for our members for some time. Apart from keeping up with the Jones', we have felt that it would be a very useful adjunct to the clubs normal meetings and newsletter as it provides a forum for chatter and information between meetings and allows people to communicate with each other at a rather more leisurely rate and in a fashion which would not otherwise occur. As our bulletin board has been functioning since about November 1983, it is interesting to note how it is being used and it is quite obvious that people are having a lot more to do with each other than would be possible through our meetings (even though we have one main meeting and four special interest group meetings per month). As I am also the newsletter editor, I did not want to be burdened...
I've been reading some of the trade publications and monthly newsletters that have sprung up to support the TRS-80 Color Computer and by and large, I think they are great. I'll be the first to admit that Radio Shack doesn't offer everything for everybody. Nobody could do that. These publications cater to specific types of users and are certainly accepted (or they wouldn't be in business very long ). First of all, as was reported in the October Newsletter article on the Color Computer Disk Drives, 32K RAM Is NOT required to use the disk drives. Pure and simply, the 32K option offers you more memory to play with.

When we introduced the Line Printer III in the November, 1979 Newsletter, we indicated that the printer has an underline character. The printer does have the underline character (CHR (95)). However, the printer will NOT underline characters. Other services and information expected to be added include weather, transportation schedules, commodities, classified ads, inventories, newsletters, library data, mail-order services, medical and agricultural information.

If you're on your local bulletin board and wish to transfer a program from their system to yours, use CLEAR & 3 to receive the file. After you're finished filling the RAM, you close the file with a CLEAR & 3. RAM is automatically saved to disk before you exit Modem 80 or, if the RAM becomes filled, a pause is issued to the host and the file is saved. A file can be manually written to disk anytime. Remember, all information can be stored menus, newsletters, programs, anything coming through the modem.
I stumbled over this discrepancy when hard drives were quite popular. I sold a package with the later, small controller board to a dentist for his office system. He came back to me right away with a squawk that he couldn't get the thing to format under NEWDOS 80 V 2.5. I struggled with it also, and found that it worked just fine with the old controller board, which I supplied to him in place of the later controller. But what was the difference I published a note in CN-80 about this problem, and shortly a letter came to me from Australia Some one there had been bitten by this same bug some time before, and fortunately had published it in a newsletter down under. The person who wrote to me had seen the earlier note, and passed it along to me. Newsletters and their readers are great Even better, the patch for the NEWDOS 80 Formatter code was only one byte. That is really elegant patching.
THE MICROCOMPUTER NEWSLETTER PUBLISHED FOR TRS-80 OWNERS Newsletter Index In This Issue Notes on Previous Newsletters Newsletters I would like to tell you how much I enjoy your NEWSletter and I am enclosing a program change for the Base Conversion program (12 80) which makes the binary printout much easier to read. This change inserts a space between each four digits (nibble) of the binary conversion. It involves changing only one line 300 and adding lines 301-306 and 611-613 . I use this program for programming EPABX's (Telephone Computers) and it has made the printout much easier to work with. I have a Model II and a Line Printer IV and am very pleased with both. Remember our battle cry WE HAVE ONLY BEGUN TO PROGRAM Retail prices in this newsletter may vary at individual stores and dealers, h The company cannot be liable for pictorial and typographical inaccuracies.

originally wrote this article a little better than a year ago in response to a discussion at the San Gabriel Tandy User Group (SAGATUG) meeting. The article was published in SAGATUG's newsletter, called The Interface, as well as in the English National Amstrad Tandy General User Group newsletter, NATGUG NEWS. As Bill Bermudez and several other readers, have asked the very same questions that initiated the article in the first place, I think it worthwhile to repeat the information.
This Newsletter article was finished because every morning my Model III has been confronting me with a You Didn't Get It Done list which included N WRITE DEC NEWSLETTER . N HRITE DEC NEWSLETTER t . T RESERVE NEU VORK TICKETS t . T JONES ABOUT CONTRACT, 1 . M 3 PM - PRODUCTION Well maybe you have a feel now for something that I am very excited about. Time Manager for both Model I and III will soon be available. Now I have to admit that you could buy a lot of notepaper for jotting down your to do lists for the 99.95 price of our Time Manager program (26-1582). But while some of you are going from notepad to notepad, looking in files, phone logs, meeting records and more, some happy owners of Time Manager (and several Radio Shack Product Line Managers) will be using this amazing tool for increasing personal productivity. It has many more features that we will talk about in future articles including the accounting and totalling features. It makes Time Manager great for developing tax...

With this issue we are happy to welcome a new writer to the News staff. Annette Zamberlin-Main has joined us and we have probably already overloaded her with work. Annette will be working with both the News and with the Tandy Newsletter on CompuServe. Annette is largely responsible for keeping the Tandy Product Information section on CompuServe up to date. With her help we are expanding that section to include all Radio Shack products, not just Computer items.
Beginning in this issue, we'll be writing a monthly column in the Radio Shack Newsletter. We plan to present new applications, modifications (some from you, and some from ourselves), and answers to queries from PROFILE II and PROFILE + users. Your feedback is our most important asset we welcome both questions and suggestions, and in future issues we will reprint as many as we have space for. Please write to us at the address at the top of this page.
Change lines 1450, 6730, and 6740 to read as shown below. Note you may already have made one change to line 6730. That change was listed in the March, 1981 Newsletter, and was not correct. 7. Change lines 420, 730, and 740 to read as follows. Note, you may have made a correction to line 730 which was printed in the March, 1981 Newsletter. That correction was in error, and the line should be changed to read as shown here

Try to think of 80 MICROCOMPUTING as more of a large club newsletter than an ivory tower high-level publication. I'll leave the pomp to other publishers .the ones with the well-deserved inferiority complexes who cater to their inadequacies by publishing esoteric baloney. This magazine is written by the readers and edited by people whose aim is to help you enjoy your TRS-80*.

I am thirteen years old and I own a Level I. Several of my friends own a TRS-80 (Level I and Level II) and we exchange many of our own programs. My friend, David Henson, gave me a graphics program that he had written. I added several minor changes and I am sending it to the Newsletter. This program is usable for Level I or Level II.
Question 7 The May, 1979 Newsletter contained several line changes to Model I Tape Mailing List (26-1503) which allow the Sort to be optional, as well as allowing a sort by Zip Code. I made these changes but now the Search function does not seem to be reliable. What can I do
In the July newsletter you asked, where are the Level I users Well here is a Level I and Level II Model I user with a program that might be of interest to anyone who works with audio. I work for a radio station, and matching the various pieces of equipment with differing impedances and best operating levels is a day in and day out task. A lot of the matching is done with amplifiers and even more is done with resistive pads. To optimize the signal to noise ratio in a very long audio chain both balanced and unbalanced pads might be needed. The program I have written is designed to both calculate balanced H pads and unbalanced T pads. It also displays the appropriate resistances as the pads would be constructed. I hope this might be of use to some of your readers.
What I have in mind this month are some customer programs which were submitted to the Newsletter staff that show what happens when you use some of the features of Extended Basic that I've been talking about. You'll find the programs elsewhere in this issue. Besides that, I thought I would bring you up to date on what's been happening in the world of computer communication to dispel some bad rumors and to offer you some facts. CompuServe (there's an article on them elsewhere in this month's Newsletter) is one of the two information databases with which Radio Shack has an agreement, the other one being the Dow Jones News Information Service (more on them later). CompuServe offers numerous major newspapers electronically, the AP news wire service, a personal computing area, computer games that can be played by yourself or with someone across the country, electronic mail or electronic CB simulation, government publications, magazine supplemental information and a host of other topics from...
Support for LDOS owners is provided in many different ways. Of course, LSI has a full time staff to answer questions for both users and programmers. Our quarterly newsletter contains a hints and tips section, programs from the support staff and other users, in depth discussions on the technical aspects of LDOS and notices of updates and new products. Support also means the continuing development of new LDOS utility programs to help you get even more from your computer. Logical Systems, the developer of LDOS, is an established, professional company dedicated to supporting its customers.
This program was supplied by Dona Erb of Pearland, Tx. for the Model II or a Model I with disk drives. Ms. Erb indicates that the original algorithm came from UNIVAC CYBER. We have modified it to work with a 16K Level II Model I and the B.R.U.C.E. program listed elsewhere in this Newsletter.
We hope you recall that last month we introduced PLUMB, a brand new newsletter published for Bulletin Board aficionados. PLUMB can be obtained by writing to Riverside Data Inc at P.O. Box 300, Harrods Creek, KY 40027 or inquiries can be made through CompuServe account 72715,210 or The Source account STQ007.

When the second PATCH below was published in the February 1982 Newsletter it contained an error. The following PATCHes (which include the correction) will allow Model III DEBUG under TRSDOS 1.3 to inspect and or change addresses in the copyrighted code areas and the ROM of the Model III.
And last, but surely not least, we (the Microcomputer News) would publish entire sections in our newsletter dedicated solely to the bugs, errors and fixes for each software package, under its respective model as we became aware of them during the course of a given month. As an aside, you may have noticed, with the January issue that the various Bugs, Errors and Fixes sections have now become one section in the News, subdivided by model.
This is what made 80 Micro great It brought enthusiasm, knowledge and hope to the readers and they, in turn, shared their special knowledge back. Though the magazine was 'big time', it always had the flavor of a club newsletter, albeit a very large one. It was where you went for help if you were stuck.
By the way, here's an open question to user's groups Would you like a monthly newsletter from Fort Worth What should we include Due to our limited people resources, the newsletter would probably be in the form of a typed, photocopied letter. Obviously, we can't supply proprietary informa
