I had a similar issue with BSD 2.11.
So, I hope this helps.
You can use vt100. However, make sure your baud rate is 9600.
(SIMH makes the virtual adjustment so you don't need to worry about SIMH settings.)
I am using BSD 2.11 on a Mac with SIMH. I noticed the console port would have a short window. But, logging into dz ports were fine. Setting the console baud rate to match the dz11 settings fixed the issue.
So, I suspect either a setting in vi that changes the window size on slow devices or it's hard coded somewhere. I will take a look.

What should I set TERM to on V8 to get the best results on my Mac Terminal. If I set it to vt52, vt100, or vt132, only 8 lines appear at the bottom of the terminal window (of about 24 lines):
"passwd" 20 lines, 770 characters
The 8 line window works about like I'd expect - the arrow keys move up and down until the screen needs to scroll, then B's and A's show up. I'm used to that on BSD. Using the j and k keys work better and when I scroll down enough lines, the lines move up to fill the whole terminal window and the file can be edited in the full window. Is there a better TERM setting that will get 24 lines to show up on file open?
