Anybody need some 1/2" 9-track tape drives?
I have a Pertec T9640 tape drive (vacuum column, 75 IPS
800/1600 Pertec unformatted interface). DEC sold this drive
as the TU45. I also have an MDB MLSI-TM11 Q-bus tape
controller that will run this drive on either LSI-11 or uVAX
II systems. DEC does not supply a driver for this setup on
the uVAX, but I have source of the driver I used on VMS 4.7.
I also have 2 CDC Keystone 92185 drives with formatted
Pertec interface. These drives handle 1600/6250 BPI, and
can start/stop at 25 IPS or stream at 25 or 75 IPS. The
tape path is all air-bearing.
I am located in the St. Louis, MO area.
