ND-110 Satellite model 9883 with serial number 21244 is a ND-110 Satellite that once was the property of Kungliga Bostadsstyrelsen and it still got the original installation on the hard disk. It has an Ethernet II card and what seems like SIBAS and COSMOS installed. At least FORTRAN and MAC is also installed. It booted without any other problem than the real time clock had run out of power.

Status

  • Boots without problem
  • Real time clock needs a new battery
  • Runs test program INSTRUCTION-B for ND-100 without any errors.
  • System console at 9600 baud, current loop.

Configuration

There is a high probability that the cards installed is not what was in it from the beginning. It's been almost filled to the limit and the only thing missing is the HDLC/MEGALINK card.
