Accessing the "before" was difficult in a basement full of furniture from migrating children. Max has the photos now. I am sure the photos will raise a smile.

Thnaks Aubrey for that insight. I still have a handful of these devices (PALCE22V10 and the like) recovered from old boards and have wondered what I can use them for (maybe hexadecimal 7-seg or 5x7 dipsplay decoders or something, but I am glad there is PALASM and PCs around to do it instead of working it all out manually like you did... PS. No before and after pics??

The thanks should go to Aubrey for taking the time to write all of this down... ...maybe you have some tales to tell of your own?

Max, thanks for the memory refresh, PAL and GALS were my intro to replacing LSI in NASA JSC costumized hardware.
