We connected to the Sigma 9 over the telephone using 300 baud A-J 242A couplers. I suppose whole-screen editing and printing functions would not have made much sense in that setting.

I think these terminals were pretty popular, as far as terminals go, in the late 70's, especially on non-DEC systems. I think the overall market was just so much smaller then than it is now. Personally, I find it strange that ADM 3A's are so coveted and yet few seem to have heard of the Hazeltines. I used both back in the day, and I much preferred the Hazeltines.
