I have many rl02 disk packs for my pdp 11/34 and 11/05. I have just been
stacking them upright, but that has not been the safest or the most space
efficient. Were any kinds of shelves made for these disk packs, perhaps
similar to 9 track hanging tape racks? Trying to make things look more
Hoping someone here has one and can share a pic, perhaps it is a design i
can duplicate and make with some woodworking tools.
If all goes well I will be driving up to WCFMW on Friday, Sep 9th, with a
van loaded with DEC and PC items.
If you are interested in any DEC gear, please contact me as early as
possible so I can get it loaded.
If you want to stop here on your way to or from VCFMW, please contact me
ASAP to set up a day and time. I am located about 12 miles west of
Champaign, IL ( I-57, I-74), which is about 2 1/2 or 3 hours south of WCFMW.
If anyone is interested in DEC chips, I will be taking offers on several
DEC boards (M7819, DZ11 and M8044, MSV11-DD come to mind- I have dozens of
each) with the gold fingers cut off. I hate to do this, and you might hate
it too, but I have a lot of stuff sitting here for years that need to go. I
also have an assortment of several thousand unused ECL chips.
Please contact me off list if you have any interest or questions. If you
wish to talk, I will gladly give you my phone # off list.
I picked up a VT220 passing by some clean out a while ago.
Green phosphor, powers up and passes self test.
The keyboard has 3 broken function row keys, keycaps.
Free to pickup in North Andover.
Shipping would be heavy and awkward with the CRT.

I have many 8mm tapes. A few are new. First comers get new ones.
I have a few 8mm cleaning cassettes
I have about a dozen DLT-II tapes.
I have some Ultrium LTO fibre-channel SCSI drives that were removed
from a tape-mounting robot several years ago. I never used them in my
computers. The mounting bracket for one was modified to have an
internal power supply -- which might be inadequate. I have two
Fujifilm 200/400 GB Ultrium 2 LTO tapes.
I have a 5.25" floppy drive.
Any of these are yours for the price of shipping; local pickup is OK

Some quick questions on fixing up a TU58:
1) Can I plug it straight into a pdp11/23+ CPU with a 10 pin ribbon cable?
2) Can I hook the 10 pin ribbon cable on it into a normal 11/23 or 11/73
bulkhead to get RS232 for hooking up to a PDT11?
3) Can the PDT11 handle anything faster than 2400 baud on the extension
ports? Can it do faster speeds in one direction?
4) Is there any possible use for this thing :-)
I know this is a long shot, but I just acquired an SSM SB1 S-100
board with no chips. Everything on the board is easy to source
but the SSM2000 chip. Does anyone have one for sale or know
where to get one?

Next week I will be in the Huntsville, Al, USA area for an entire day with no commitments. Does anyone have recommendations on how to spend my day? I have been to the space and rocket museum several times. Any computer museums or displays, especially of space-related equipment? Any good surplus stores? All suggestions welcome.
You don't understand anything until you learn it more than one way.
The 11/24 System Technical Manual says that the terminator (M9302 or M9312)
must be installed in the last slot (slot 9) of the backplane, and that all
empty slots must have a grant card. What I am not clear on is what they mean
by an "empty" slot. Specifically, if I have the CPU, the M7134 memory map
and a memory board installed in slots 1-3 and then nothing else except the
terminator in slot 9, does this mean I have to install grant cards in slots
My guess is that this isn't a requirement because the grant cards go in rows
C and D while the terminator is rows A and B, but I am hoping someone can
confirm this for me please?
