Hi Dain, well I was 18 years old and spent a lot of night trying to understund more about programming...but with the c64 used in bbs and 300 baud I have had some more satisfaction.

Did a small microchip 16f628 encoder for ctcss some time ago without display, your way is nice and with smd can put it into the microphone box.....for old 2 meter rig.

I went from VIC-20 to a Coco3 and then finally got my own computer, a TI99/4A. I was a bit younger than you, and accomplished little except learning some programming habits that are still proving hard to unlearn 30 years later. Oh, well. I'm still having fun messing around with computers.

Unfortunately, the CTCSS prototype I built was scrapped (I needed the board for another project), after which I found out that the problem wasn't my wiring, it was a bad capacitor grounding out one of the the XTAL lines of the 328. I may revisit that project someday, but at this time I don't need it.

I too started with the VIC-20. Technically the Altair 8800 was the first computer I used, but didn't program it at all (I was only 6 years old at the time). The VIC-20 was the computer that I started learning BASIC on.
