  I have an m76 that I can try it on, possibly in a few days.  I'm
actually on a road trip right now retrieving that m76, along with a huge
truckload of other stuff.  I will do what I can to help, consistent with
being able to spend enough time preparing my exhibit for VCF-East. (my
PDP-11/70! 8-D)
