I have reached a point where I must dissolve my collection.
I have just reached this decision, so this email is providing a head's up
as it were. It seems so many people reach this point then have to get rid of
their collection within the next n (where n is <10) days.....
I am in the process of making an inventory, but basically I have the
System 1. VAX 400VLC, 26in? Color monitor, external storage and CD w/caddy
System 2. VAX 3100-10 with Evans and Sutherland PS390 Includes connection
to VAX, Evans and Sutherland Monitor, button box, Keyboard, Stereographic
glasses and software.
System 3. PDP 11/23 in a pedestal enclosure
System 4. VAX 6000-440; contains 4 RA90 drives, two internal to the cabinet
and 2 spare, integral infoserver and several CD drives and a TU81+ tape
transport. OpenVMS 6.0 Con Dist.
And the system that got me started in this hobby,
System 5. PDP 11/23+ DECDatasystem Two Cabinet wide 19"Rack form factor;
processor has been upgraded to 11/73. 3 Drives; 2 operational, one standby.
2X RD52 and a RD53. TSV05 tape transport & 2X RL02 Drives. I have numerous
terminals for this system, Two Tek Graphics Terminals, a few VT type and an
LA100. This system was used as a basis for developing micro controllers, to
that end this system also comes with a secondary chassis, two LSI 11 Falcon
boards, in the original packaging, a Mentec M90 (I think) PDP on a board,
the original 11/23+ processor and several other modules. The software as I
recall is RSX-11M-PLUS (V?), FORTRAN & BASIC Also comes with MicroPower
Pascal for driving the external Microprocessors. The software comes complete
with Licenses, about 10 to 15 RL02 disks, loads of tape and an Orange wall
of Documentation. I also have a Qbus ESDI card and Drive, but have not
I am Loathe to let these systems go. But I cannot keep them. I am offering
them to the list first in the hope someone will keep them alive and continue
to use them. I will be taking an inventory soon and will post that as I make
my way through everything. Items are for local pick up only (Madison, WI). I
am looking for Donations for this equipment, which, given how unusual some
of them are, I think is warranted.
