Geocache Description:

This cache is not at the posted coordinates. BYOP as it is a micro.

As a hobby I enjoy studying the history of electronic computers. This puzzle deals with code common to many old computers. This computer is famous for being the computer most important in the creation of hacker culture, at MIT, BBN and elsewhere. It was one of the first modular transistorized commercial computers.

Below is a captured I/O stream that needs a concise translation to find the final cache coordinates:
