I may have mentioned this already, but since you have a high-speed paper
tape reader, you can get by with a VT220 as a 20mA terminal. I swap one
off of my PDP-8/L to save paper when playing around. 95% of the tapes I
have are fan-fold. One of the ones that isn't is a floating point package
for 8K paper tape BASIC that I need to load Star Trek, and at the moment,
my 8K expander box is not attached.

It's not authentic, but it _is_ convenient.

BTW, is there a good modern source for the Mate-n-Lok connectors that wre in
common usage for 20mA cables? I'd like to make a switchbox.
