Likewise, I'm looking for a couple of AT&T/Teletype keyboards for my
5620/Blit and my 730+.  They do _not_ have a round DIN plug, which
distinguishes them from 98% of what's out there.  They have an 8p8c
connector ("RJ-45").

There are several matching keyboards with different numbers of keys
(~98-103).  56K-341-AAN is one part number.  Keyboards that will work
are the same ones used on the AT&T 4410 and Teletype 5410 terminal.

I'm also seeing part numbers in the technical drawings
pp 87-95) like:

It appears to have 6 of the 8 pins in use - serial in, serial out,
+5V, -12V, signal GND, and frame GND (it makes its own -5V for the MCU
from a zener diode on the -12V line).  All of this plus the 1.8432MHz
crystal, suggest to me a simple async protocol.  This would make a
keyboard emulator simple to construct once someone has sniffed the

One is good.  Two is better.
