Hal Communications

Hal Communications was the first amateur radio product vendor to sell a microprocessor based computer, the MCEM-8080. Their product was reviewed by the American Radio Relay League in the December, 1976, issue of QST.

I solicited a donation of a computer and matching video terminal for the Purdue Amateur Radio Club and gave them a copy of the program converted to that equipment for their own distribution. This is a letter from them elaborating on this transaction.

Hal Communications continues to produce amateur radio products today.
