Calculator collectors in Finland?


Hi, I would like to know if there are any fellow collectors here in Finland.




I don't know if he is a collector but one of the best HP 41 programmers was a guy with the last name of Tapani. He works in the mathematics department at Jyvaskyla University in Finalnd and he still has a FTP site of HP calculator programs at "". I'm sorry but I don't remember his first name. I've asked Chris Cottoti to post his name and E-mail address here, I think he'll do it tomorrow.



I guess Tarpani is his first name. His whole name is Tarpani Tarvainen (just from my mind, I hope it's right, Tarpani).

I know, he was an expert in HP-71 progtramming too, together with the French guys. I have to serarch their names in the old publications.

All these guys were great programmers. Thanks a lot to them.


Yes, Tapani Tarvainen has many programs loaded on the internet. His e-mail is

I suggest anyone interested in the HP41C/CV/CX, HP-71B and HP-75C/D handheld computers and HP-IL, Hewlett-Packard Interface Loop check out Tapani's FTP site at:
