I doubt it.

My observation as well.

Yes. According to http://www.pds.planar.com/prod_ctr/elt.pdf it's
a DEC LK401-compatible. That's my next challenge. OTOH, as long as
I'm not using this with any software that requires a DEC numeric keypad,
I _think_ I can get away with a different keyboard (not sure about
entering setup mode with something else).

I'd rather have had the one that sold previously, with power brick and
manual, but this was only the third one to come up in recent weeks,
so I jumped all over it. Not complaining about the price. :-)
