I had an ACT4 which worked quite well, and it may still be in my pile?  
I don't recall what I did
with it as I got into other terminals that I had to support. 

I modified the Pick terminal drivers to run it, and it was my system 
console for a long time
as well.  I recall paying about $400 for it or so, and was glad to get 
it in a time of $1200 ADM3's
and multi thousand dollar "real" terminals.  Adds terminals when 
available were not that much, but
were rare as they were pretty standard on all systems.

Please get Al K to scan them, or send them to me, I have a scanner and 
would scan them
for him when I get started.  I hope to do a lot of scanning here in january.
