Hello from South Africa.
I recently got my hands on a UK Minitel 1. I don’t know how it ended up in South Africa but my guess would be that they wanted to pilot the service here.
I love this little device and enjoy playing with it.
Here are some of my projects …

This minitel is different than other model 1 versions. It has a QWERTY keyboard layout and annoyingly no Fnct key.
Does anyone know how to disable local echo without the Fnct key?
I’m very happy that I discovered this forum and is going to take some to read through the topics.
