Where to Find Trans41
Message #1 Posted by Mark Hardman (LED) on 12 July 2003, 11:18 p.m.

I recently had the good fortune of buying a HP-82973 HP-IL ISA card for $20 from a used PC equipment dealer. He had this in a stack of sound blaster audio cards in a corner of his shop.

After a quick look at the MoHPC's articles and forums, I can see that I'll get the most out of this treasure by using the latest version of EMU41. However, it looks like getting EMU41 up and running will be a fair sized project in itself.

I'd like to perform some minimal testing on this card before making a large investment of my time setting up EMU41. I've tried testing the card with a copy of HPLINK from the Museum's FTP site--with no success. Other articles suggest that the HP-82973 can be made to work on faster PC's by using the TRANS41 utility.

I've searched high and low and cannot seem to locate a copy of TRANS41. Is it still available? If so, where?

BTW: I've already turned this fellow's shop upside down looking for other HP-82973's. Sorry, this was a one of a kind find.

Dear Mark,
Transfer/41 has been made by:

Tacit Logic Systems Inc. P.O. BOX 231178 TIGARD, OREGON 97223 (503) 684-6088

I don't if this firm still exists... However you can use: With HP-71B, Cross71 (Barizien) and Hpillink (HP) With HP-41C/CV/CX, Linkplus (Southern Software) Good luck!
