I am interested in old computer terminals, including the one described below.
If you have one, please do not throw it out - I would be happy to give it a good home!
Send me an email.

  The ITT Model 3501A ASCIScope is a self-contained terminal with a full keyboard, monochrome CRT, and a top-mounted acoustic coupler, first available in October of 1972. By April of 1974 more than 700 had been sold.

The 3501 model supports 960 characters (12 lines × 80 characters) on an 8×5 inch screen using 64 ASCII characters with a 5×7 font matrix.

It is capable of both half and full duplex operation at 2400 bits per second.

The Model 3501 Asciscope terminal offers the user editing facilities and communicates at either 110 bits/sec (Teletype-compatible) or 300 bits/sec. The terminal has a memory capable of storing the entire screen display (12 lines of 80 characters each). A 5 x 7 dot matrix forms characters. Editing can be done on a line-by-line basis before transmission. Interfaces are included to printers and to external 1,200- and 2,400-baud modems. Purchase price is $2,195; maintenance cost is $20 per month.
