You'll need a backplane too - and that's non-trivial. (I'm in the process of
producing one for a KE11-A.) The RK611 is a 9-slot (although several slots
are just SPC, and can be ignored).
Hence the plaint on my 'PDP-11 Models' page:
"DO NOT just keep the boards, and discard the box, bulkhead panels, cables,
etc. Everyone does that, as a result of which we are now over-supplied with
boards - but the cables, boxes etc are now rare (un-obtainium in some cases
..) These are all now worth a lot more than the cards are!"
