Greg Merrell sent me the following message clearing up the details with
Radix-50.  Thanks, gang.  -Mike

p.s. I'm still curious if this is actually useful for Ham IP?
From: Greg Merrell <GREG@mail.msm.com>

 Actually DEC called it Rad-50 as even the radix was in octal!

 From my old RSX-11M pocket reference card (at least it took some digging to
 find it - it wasn't on the top of my desk!):

 0	Space
 1-26	A-Z
 27	$
 28	.
 29	Reserved
 30-39	0-9

 But the rest of your argument was right.
