Build your own cheap
(c) phunatic phreak homebrew projects...
I used this to get the data
out of the prepaid type-1 cards that were release in
Nov '96 by swisscom. I couldn't
wait to see the data... and i didn't have a card
reader, so i built it on my
own, veeeery cheap...
I used my old amiga, as the
parallel port access is easy to program.
Think its not a problem to
do that on a pc as well. Nice is, that you don't really
have to bother with the clockrate
to read out the type 1 card.
The technical info on whats
going on and how the pins are connected will follow,
in the meantime, figure it
out yourself, you will learn more this way ; ).

a great job...)

Remove all unecessary killer tools like cheese holder and stuff. All
we need is a good pressure
for the contacts. Bend the pins somewhat to have a good contact on
The 'leukoplast' will act as insulator and that the connector-pin block
won't slip away.
Adjust it and start the read process.
