Why not just hook up your handy-dandy ever-trusty Tandy Model 100/102 or
200 laptop? IIRC, It used VT52 as the serial protocol for it's screen...
;-) You do have one, right? ;^>

Just set the screen parameters to 40x8 or 40x16 respectively, and 600 or
1200 bps (again, respectively; scrolling was a bear on the Tandys and could
cause lost characters -- altho there are patches available on
www.club100.org that could improve the problem and attain you 9600bps,
IIRC. The Tandy 200 was better than the 100/102.) and hop into TELCOM.

Might need a little tweaking, but it should work...
