I am new to the list so please excuse me for leaving out a few essential
elements of my message.
I am in Cardiff in the UK and would prefer collection of the Digital DEC
3000 unit as it is large and heavy and would not be easy to arrange
I am happy to wait for a few weeks/months until covid restrictions are
fully lifted and would really like the item to go to someone who
appreciates its heritage.
I have an old DEC 3000 unit that I no longer have time or space for, and
was wondering what to do with it.
The rear plate shows PE42A-B9, CPU KN17, DEC 3000 600S and the ROM has a
sticker showing Dec 1989.
I have a video cable but not a suitable monitor so can't fully test it
but I think it is booting up OK as the diagnostic LED's on the rear show
11011101 or DD in hex which I think means it has booted OK to console.
It has been running in the past and my last efforts were probably 10+
years ago when I installed VMS version 7 with a guest licence.
I also have a few peripherals including a SZ12 disk unit, LK201
keyboard, circular mouse and various SCSI and video cables.
It has been stored in my garage which is not totally sealed so it has
suffered a little corrosion to the rear connectors but it looks recoverable.
All thoughts and opinions welcome.
