The PC Tech Journal was a sister publication of PC Magazine that focused on the technical aspects of the Personal Computer. It had fewer product reviews and far fewer ads, but much meatier technical articles.

Through some odd sequence of events I've managed to get two clean copies of PC Tech Journal Volume 1, Number one but don't seem to have my issue of Volume 1, Number 2. I am, therefore, very interested in trading my extra copy of 1,1 for your copy of 1,2. If you are interested, please contact me at the link below.

I would like to get a copy or scan of an article in the June 1985 issue of PC Tech Journal. It's an article about the Orchid PCTurbo 186 accelerator card. I would really appreciate it as I have one of these cards and no docs. Looking to learn more about this card. Thanks.
