I have one VT55-FB which has "the toilet paper dispenser" at the
right side. There is some paper in it too. I never tried it though.
At the moment (and probably for quite some time to come) I will
be busy with repairs and getting the systems running. And I
already notice that planned activities take much more time :-/
The VT55-FB will be "checked" when the 11/35 is on the top of
the list. The 11/35 has a 20mA current loop console M7800-YA,
and connects to the VT55.
BTW, Hellschreiber is known in the HAM radio amateur world.
AFAIK, invented by the Germans, hence its name. The nice thing
about this principle is that text stays readable, even when the
receiver is not in sync (within acceptable limits).
