BUSS - The Independent Newsletter of Heath Co. Computers

The BUSS Newsletter was published and edited by Charles Floto. He also founded SEXTANT magazine.

Issues started in April 1977 (according to a list included in issue #9) and continued through March 7, 1989 (issue #159). I have issue #7 - #9, #12 - #159 and scans of #10 & #11. I would love to get original copies #1 - #6, #10 - #11, in order to complete my set, but would be very happy to even just get scans of #1-6. Below is a table with the issue numbers and the publication date.

BUSS also provided annual directories which included lists of companies which provided Heathkit related products.

If I can get permission to post these, I will start to scan and post them. Reading through these issues help reveal things that were happening at the time.
