2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

Radio Shack TRS-80 Cassette Recorder CCR-81 (26-1208)

The TRS-80 CCR-81 was a cassette player and recorder from Radio Shack. The "CCR" in the name stood for Computer Cassette Recorder. While a fully functioning audiocassette player and recorder, the CCR-81 was also a computer data input/output device.

Radio Shack produced few software titles on tape, preferring its proprietary Program Pak cartridge-based system, but a wide variety of third-party developers released software on tape as a standard format. Usually the price for a program was the same whether on tape or disk, but the cost of the drive hardware was much higher for a disk drive.

Like many tape recorders of the day, the CCR-81 was a full-sized desktop model, with a large speaker, intended to permit multiple users around a table, such as participants in a business meeting, to hear the sound. It was followed up by the much smaller CCR-82.
