Hey guys,


Further to our conversation - I was looking at this beast:


Wasn't sure if it was two units?  The first couple of pics look different.
Anyway, if I understood correctly, it was possible (and possibly done in the
1970s by hobbyists) to convert one of these baudot teletypes to ASCII and
use with a computer?  This one is out of my reach since the auction is pick
up only.  But I kind of like the look of the Model 28 and I understand
they're pretty bulletproof once you have them working.  I'm just not sure if
this would work, and if this particular one is ASR or what, because it
mentions a reperforator and from what I read 28s that came with that had a
tape reader also?
