  1. I started my development work on this model in Czechoslowakia in 1980. At that time it was very difficult to by any devices from the “WEST” so when we had foud a bulgarian magnetic tape which was more or less a copy of the original Wang model I created my own magnetic tape controller for this bulgarian tape recorder. Later I connected 8 simle monitors CM7202 via serial interface and I created software which enables to entering date for 8 operators simultanously using the memory od the CM7202 and and then transfering data do magnetic tape of DE520.
