This is great info and I've updated these pages as a result:
Cool. I'll try to firm up the facts in the next day or two and report
back with any updates.
My dad was buddies with one of the senior management at Research Inc. and
arranged a tour for me there when I was about 15 I think. I took the
model 3300 home with me that day as well as blank PCBs for newer models
they had in development. Unfortunately, I no longer have those PCBs
but my memory (which is good, just short) suggests that one of them did
have a 6502 on it. I remember contemplating how I could source all the
parts and build one of them up but I never executed on that plan.

I have 3 Telerays, as shown here on the bottom:
Bottom left is either a 3300 or a later model in a similar case.
Bottom right is probably of similar vintage, but I can't remember the
model number. Next to bottom, left, is a Teleray 10.
Yes... the bottom left looks similar to what I remember although mine did
not have switches between the keyboard and the display and the display
bezel was a 1/4" thick piece of glass that had been painted black on
the backside and masked to expose just the viewable part of the CRT.
There was no "carrier" indicator on the bezel but there was a pot which
adjusted the brightness and was also the on/off switch. The pot stuck
through a hole drilled in the glass with a black knob on the outside.
There were a few switches on the back... one picked half/full duplex
and the other the baud rate... which I seem to remember was just a two
position switch and you had to set an internal jumper to chose which
speed was assigned to which position-- but it's possible I may have made
that mod myself, adding a toggle to the back panel so that I didn't have
to keep taking the (heavy) lid off to change speeds.
I will be down at the warehouse tomorrow and will
check the model plates.
I am very much interested in having documentation online; the CHM only
has a Teleray 11 in their collection:
OK. I'll look into scanning what I have. I know where it is on the
bookshelf, in a 3-ring binder with Research, Inc. logo on it.
In December, 2007 Curtis H. Wilbar Jr. mentioned that
he had a "Teleray
TE-10", I don't know if he's still on the list.
They were a neat piece of computing history for me-- especially with the
local MN connection.
