Z88 to 128K Spectrum Cables

This cable is suitable for all 128K Spectrums, from the original right up to the +3. It connects via the phone-type RS232 socket.

The RS232 socket on the Spectrum has pins numbered 1 to 6, with pin 6 being the one closest to the little "lever" that you press to release the cable.
