Yeah to be honest.. I'm not sure I'm the biggest serial terminal computer fan.  I find them way harder to diagnose than computers with video cards.  But, the SWTPC is an iconic system.. so I'll just keep muddling until I figure it out.

If and when you get consistent characters, no matter how wrong, then it's 
time to look at the bit patterns of what you get V what you expect  (is 
anybody around who knows?)
Since, obviously, if consistent, then it might be right except for one or 
more bits stuck on or stuck off.

Yes, it is frustrating.
