Wanted for RSX-11M Plus 4.6: the DECnet install tapes

I am trying to do a clean install of RSX-11MP 4.6 on simh. I have found the install magtapes on Bitsavers, and they work fine.

However, trying to install DECnet, I found only 1 of the 2 (or 3) install tapes.

What is missing is the decnet11mp46-deckit tape. The accompanying **netkit** tape is on Bitsavers, but not the **deckit** tape. So you cannot complete the install process...

Does anyone have this tape? I know there's an installed simh *disk* image, I also know you can fix the problem with it. 
But there is just nothing like having a full, proper install process to come up with your own setup :)
And it would be nice if the last version is preserved completely.

Kind regards,
