Indeed it does. I finally figured that one out last night
Needless to say all of the locations I examined came up filled with zeros.

However I sat down this afternoon to try and work out whats going on to 
stop any of

my unibus controllers being seen.

Here's what I came up with

1. The same processor KDJ11-E can be used in a Qbus or Unibus system.

2.  My monitor display does not work the same way as the manual shows.

3.  Although the monitor display says Unibus system.

      I suspect what I have is a CPU used in a Qbus system with a hacked 
monitor and boot eprom.

      For whatever reason they managed to disable the unibus  I/O

      I think the monitor Unibus detection was never disabled because 
the module never went in one.

     I know there is a V2 version of the Monitor

4.  I have what I believed is a working 11/83 in my computer room

5 . I'm going to try my processor in there and yes I know about PMI and  
the backplane.

Does any of this mean anything to you?

Regards Rod
