Hi Dave,

  Rick Bensene seems to be the expert on the Tektronix 31s. I think he has
a section on his website about them. He used to work for Tektronix. FWIW I
have three Tek 31s NIB! Had a fourth one labeled as a (mumble) Survey
Calculator but I got rid of it.

  OH I think Sellam had some kind of docs for the T31s too but I doubt he's
been able to find them.
