Has anyone ever used the cassette record feature on the Jr?

I had an original Radioshack system and the cassette seems to work ok, was really slow as expected..
but back then it was soooo cool....

I remember an article in Byte magazine, where the author discussed how they used 1200hz and 2400hz for 1s and 0s.

The author lambasted the designers as being typical design guys that did not have the fore thought to realize and take in to account that 2400hz was a harmonic of 1200hz and should have realized this as an issue for reliability.

It was a great read back then as I still remember the early years.

i built an S-100 computer with Bill Godbouts memory boards, Northstar Hard sectored Floppy drive...
I remember when the Color boards for the S-100 showed up on the scene and I said, "who the hell needs color for a computer", wow so young and naive.
