I am now seriously interested, especially if Dan Cohoe and I can
work out transportation details. I could use one as a road map
to get the other one working.

ObFolklore - when I got mine at Dayton a number of years ago (for $35)
and got it home, I had no idea how to test the dataset. Most BBSs
(this being before the days of ISPs) had converted to 300/1200 baud
racked modems and not all supported 110 baud anylonger. I thought of
one that surely could do it - CompuServe. I looked up the number and
was able to connect and get a logon prompt from the old Classic
online service.

Since I didn't have schematics, I didn't know where to tap in current
loops, and had to continue my search for a PDP-8 console. Now that I
_do_ have PDF scans of schematics and the maintenance manual, I can
contemplate that conversion project I started so long ago, even if
I never get the touch-tone pad reattached.
