The Apple II paddle I/O Port is immediately available to connect an RS232 type. serial mode printer. Tom Geer, of the Empire Electronics store in Burien is probably the first person in the area to have a TTY up and running. If you ask, Tom would probably be glad to give you some hints on how to proceed. There is
a simple machine language program in the revised Apple II manual to enable a printer.
Empire has ordered a number of “Black Box” printers from Expandor, with delivery set for March. The Black Box is an 80 column, 10
CPS, serial mode impact printer which uses 8-1/2″ plain paper rolls. It sells for $425.00.
