Do you remember if you had to load a small program BEFORE the loader to set your 2SIO to 8-N-2 rather than the 7-E-2 that the Teletype needs and then run another AFTER BASIC is loaded to put it back to 7-E-2? The MITS BASIC manual doesn't say it's necessary but the bootloader site says it is and it makes sense that it would be.
