Well..  Applicon is the right spelling. I've found my original mail to
the NetBSD list from 1995 in the archives where I've listet the contents
of the machine:

I've spelled it Applicon to this time and to this teme the machine was next
to me.. it seems to be the right stuff, but besides the fact that I can read
9 Track tapes with an TSZ07 I don't even think that the machine still
exists... In any case it is out of reach.
