hp 20b sale in Germany
Hello,

I haven't been here for a while, so I might not be at the current state of things of the wp 34s/31s project. But I wanted to let you know that currently a german company is selling hp 20b calculators at € 17.95 (suitable for being converted into a wp device):

Go to http://www.dynatech.de and search for hp-20 b.

I don't have anny connection with the company, but years ago I bought several hp 30b from them.

Regards,

Helmut (Bremen, Germany)

RE: hp 20b sale in Germany
I didn't see them on the link.
Are they already gone?
[edit]
oh I found it!
But I don't understand Deutsche enough to order.
[edit #2]
alas, vereinigten staaten is not listed among the places they ship to

[Late edit]
I found a mint one on TAS for around $28 USD (probably close to what it would cost to buy the EU one and ship it here).

10B, 10BII, 12C, 14B, 15C, 16C, 17B, 18C, 19BII, 20b, 22, 29C, 35, 41CV, 48G, 97

Price now € 61.95. (Plain wrong, price for different calculator)

Correction: €17.95 is current price.

I still see them at €17.95:

P.S.: I could order some and send them to the US. Letter is €3.70, small parcel is €8.89. No idea about customs etc., as I never have sent goods to the US. But there should be plenty of experience here in the forum?

careful ... you cannot send any hardware items as a "letter", an international "letter" may only contain paper ...

I used this term for the wonderful wp 34s and wp 31s calculators which you can obtain by flashing the firmware of a standard hp 20b or hp 30b with what has evolved from a project of forum members.

A highly recommendable experiment - but you need a 20b or 30b which are not available anymore.

RE: hp 20b sale in Germany
UPDATE:
The HP 20b I purchased on TAS arrived today.
It looks almost new, and came with English and French "Quick Start Guide"s.
And after replacing the batteries, it is working.
I'm happy with it.

10B, 10BII, 12C, 14B, 15C, 16C, 17B, 18C, 19BII, 20b, 22, 29C, 35, 41CV, 48G, 97
