Anyone have a spare PDP-11/84 serial console panel they could part with?

You should be able to get it running without the DEC panel (I have certainly
run M8190 cards in an 11/23 chassis, without the front panel); the serial
connection is the same as the DLV11-J, etc, pinout here:
and most of the functionality of the panel (e.g. the force dialog switch) is
repeated on the CPU board as jumpers/switches.
> a baud rate selection switch
That turns out to be purely off-board (using a clock on the card, and the
'external clock' option on the CPU (same as the 11/23+).

This is the only part I wonder about - I'd have to check to see if there's
anything critical in there for controlling the power supplies.
