I have an original 520ST (purchased in '86 or '87).  I am curious as to how I 
can upgrade its memory.  If a previous posting here has the info, please 
tell which message and I will read it.
 
Basically, I'm wondering if there are any memory upgrade kits for this still 
available, and also if one can do this by obtaining the memory chips and 
soldering them in.
 
Thanks.

A reasonable upgrade is the JRI SIMM board which costs about 
$100 plus the SIMMS. 4 megs would cost somewhere in the $250
range.

Depending on the revision # of your motherboard, there's between
5-20 solder connections. It's not too bad, though. I've done
5 of 'em.

You can get the board at most major Atari dealers.
