KSR33s did not. I had both hooked up to my Altair 8800 back in '77 via 110 baud, 20mA currentloop serial interfaces. Ah, memories!ASR33 on a Altair, that far back, You must be at least 100,Smart*ss! Nah, I was in college (sophmore).I started out on a RCA 1802 8 bit and I still have it. I modified it towork on S100 bus so I could get more memory , 64k , man you were top dog with that kind of memory.Only had 56K (seven 8KB RAM cards) and a nice 8K EPROM board (had 1702A PROMS on it) holding a monitor program.
