It is in nice clean original condition, and powers up!
Using a Variac I brought the AC voltage up slowly the first few times and everything seems fine...
"Heathkit's H8 is an Intel 8080-based microcomputer sold in kit form starting in 1977. The H8 was... similar to the S-100 bus computers of the era, and like those machines was often used with the CP/M operating system on floppy disk. The main difference between the H8 and S-100 machines was the bus; the H8 used a 50-pin bus design that was smaller, more robust and better engineered electrically. The machine also included a bootstrap ROM that made it easier to start up, including code for running basic input/output and allowing input through a front-mounted octal keypad and front panel display instead of the binary switches and lights used on machines like the Altair 8800. The H8 was a successful design..."
This is an 8-bit (octal) system.
This vintage computer is used and sold "As Is" without any warranty or guarantee.
I don't see any modifications, and everything is as I received it...
