The following gear is available for local pickup or pickup by shipper from
Nashville, TN. The cost: FREE
This is a true rescue - the space where the gear is located is to be rented
and will be given to scrappers if not picked up within a week or two.
Here's an approximate inventory:
1 PDP11/73 processor - 1 Mb memory (maybe more)
2 RL01 drives (one may not be functional)
1 RL02 drive
Fujitsu Winchester drive (probably around 75 MB)
2 RX02 drives
1 dual RX50 drive
1 TK50 tape unit
+ miscellaneous disk packs, many floppies, cabinets, etc.
BTW: After discussing the "cabinets" (racks) with the owner, their description
sounded to me like standard DEC Corporate cabinets - except that one has a
built in console "table".
Please respond directly to me ( lbickley at bickleywest.com ) as the owner has
asked me to handle the "logistics" of the rescue. First come first serve -
exception - anyone taking "all" of the above has priority over partial
Note that there are RL02 packs in the mix - and I already have agreed to pay
for their shipping - as they may contain historically important sources. If
so, I will make sure Al Kossow (bitsavers.org) gets images of the sources.
