I think the ones we had at KRCR in the late 70's were 60, might have 
been 75 though.  Teletype 15's IIRC.  By the time I arrived at WDTV, 
they were up to something over 100, Teletype 28's then.  Either machine 
was the electric equ to a common hockey puck as long as you gave the 
motors a shot of 10w occasionally.  Legibility of the output was 
optional though as you well know.  Bent hammers, cockeyed characters 
were the rule of the day.
