 What all is the DEC LK201 used on. I know it works on the Rainbow, Decmate ll
and now the Pro-350. Was this kind of a general purpose DEC keyboard ?
 There's a raft of them in the main branch of the local Goodwil, left behind
when a bunch of Rainbows were either scooped up or junked.

 Also I have an interesting looking k-b that I've hung onto for a while. Looks
somewhat like an oversized C-64 with beige and grey keys and brown numeric.
Has F1-12 on top and F13-15 between the main and num keypads next to
term ans, copy, and a square image. It has an 8-trace connector kind of like an
oversized RJ45. No external label but internally has a "Cherry", Waukegan, Ill
label, and B4VE-A302, 51941115 Rev. F. It was manufactored in 84. The
main chip is mounted, 350M 9103, VANILLA, REV C . Anyone got a clue as to
what this is or a need for it ?
