 ... it *did* help ... :)

consolechars --tty=/dev/tty3 -vf lat9w-16
[man consolechars]
did the trick on tty3 ... thanks a lot ... :)

I think I played with consolechars some time ago, and probably didn't
find the correct map like, eg., lat9w* ...

Eric: Before you play with it: There's a dry-run option for the
command:
consolechars --no-act --tty=/dev/tty3 -vf lat9w-10
               ^^^^^^

and here the maps are in /usr/share/consolefonts/, IINM ...

And I'd be careful with changes to /etc/console-tools/config, just in
case you want to make sure you still can key the correct passwd next
time you want to log in to a console ... :) 

Thanks to everyone: Eric for asking, Simon for the answer ...

Best Regards
Wolfgang
