    Hello from UK, Singer Link GAT-1 owner

    Hello from the UK,

    I recently bought this GAT-1 from E-bay. The pictures show it before I picked it up, it now resides in a domestic garage.

    I was lucky enough to get a full set of manuals with it. Following these we've managed to power it up, commission it and get it flying (of sorts), albeit with the pitch control working in reverse. Unfortuately, whiist investigating this we blew the PSU. A new power transistor later and we've got power back but have now identified an issue with the Time Division card, which might help to explain the PSU issue .... replacement Op Amps now on order.

    I've learnt alot about analogue computers in the last three weeks!

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Hi Mike

    I was so close to bidding on this one, went for 440 quid wasn't it? Great buy well done, let me know if you decide to sell it on. Otherwise if you get it going i would be intrigued to come and visit to see it as I work over Manchester way sometimes.

    All the best

    Re: Hello from UK, Singer Link GAT-1 owner

    Hello Mike. I hope you are still on this forum. I acquired 2 of these units recently without any manuals or information whatsoever and would really love to have some info even if it's just a tech description or a block diagram. a Complete set of manuals will of course be ideal. Any chance of a little help ? Regards,Martin.
