Promenade C1 Clone Information
A clone of the Promenade C1 EPROM programmer, called the Megabit C1 Clone is made by Dan Newbury, who can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Megabit C1 Clone is 100% compatible with the original Promenade C1 EPROM Programmer, made by the Jason-Ranheim company. Dan only charges the cost of parts plus a little for his time to make the Megabit C1 Clone, which comes to $100, plus the cost of shipping to wherever you're at.

Dan also makes an adapter, called the Megabit Programmer, that can be used with the Promenade C1 that will allow someone with a C1 programmer to program a 1meg, 2meg, 4meg and 8meg EPROM (27C010, 27C020, 27C040, 27C080). As an example of the amount of storage, a person could put 64 ea. 16k cartridge programs in one 8meg EPROM. Here's a photo of the Megabit Programmer:
This adapter will work with an original Promenade C1 or with the Promenade C1 Clone. The cost of the Megabit Programmer is $75 plus shipping. Click here to view a PDF flyer for the Megabit Programmer.
