I'm curious as to what you'd be able to find. Like I said, I'm pretty sure
DEC never did an RK11-C inlay; the engineering drawings for the 19" indicator
panel (included in the RF11 engineering drawings:


on pp. 187-188) list many inlays, but not an RK11 one. Also, I've looked
through the RK11-C manual:


but it contains no mention of an indicator panel, which it surely would if
there was one.

Uhhh... plug the paddle boards on the end of the flat cables from the
indicator panel into the pre-wired slots in the RK11-C backplane (see the
RK11-C engineering drawings:


pg. 36)? :-)

Hence my comment that to make use of the _inlay_ I proposed to produce, one
had to have an RK11-C _and_ a spare DEC indicator panel...
