Smarterm ][ 80 Column Video Card Manual

Does anyone remeber how to use the ALS Smarterm 80 column card? I have searched for any information and come up empty. A friend gave me an Apple][+ with 64k memory 2 disk drives and the video card but I can't figure out how to get into 80 column mode. Any help or links to a manual or site would be appreciated.

This is correct.  The guy who founded ALS and designed the SmartTerm video card has posted on the Apple II Enthrusiatsts forum on Facebook within the past few years.  I may have the manual for the card around somewhere.  It may be on the Asimov archive also.

 

FWIW, you need to have the monitor plugged into the 80 column card output to see 80 columns.  There should be a short piggy back cable that goes out the back of the Apple II and into the NTSC video out.
