I’ve been a collector of old DEC systems for about 30 years. I haven’t been active on the
list for the last decade or so due to work, but am “surfacing” now as my wife and I are
moving and I need to find a good home for two of my systems and their peripherals.
I can follow up with photos et cetera if necessary, but the subject line really says it
all: a functional 11/45 in a 6’ standard DEC rack, and an 11/34 in a shorter DEC rack.
Both systems are functional. The 11/45 has an RK05. The 11/34 has a TS03.
I also have a TU80 9-track tape drive (short rack), and dual RL02 drives in another short
rack that go with the systems. These would come with a couple dozen tapes, and about 10
RL02 packs. I have a few RK05 packs as well.
I would like these systems to go to someone who understands them and will use them. As
members on this list will know, they exemplify computing in the 1970s through the 1980s,
and it would be nice to keep them running for educational and historical purposes.
The systems and peripherals are free, but they must be picked up. I cannot ship, nor do I
have time to separate components.
If I cannot find a home for these systems then they will, unfortunately, be headed to the
metal recycler. I have tried museum donation but bureaucracy gets in the way and
decisions take far too long. Hence I am offering the systems here on the list.
The deadline for pickup is October 15th. This is a hard deadline as we must vacate our
house. I would take the machines with me if I could!
