Nascom Magazines

Between 1979 and 1989, a number of English publications were produced. These were centred on the Nascom range at first, then expanded to include all 80-BUS products, especially the Gemini range of boards and systems.

Timeline of magazines, taken from Richard Espley’s site www.80bus.co.uk:
