Yes, it is probably what I'm going to have to use to recover
the Tektronix 4051 tapes that I got from Jim Willing.
It shouldn't be to difficult to do something similar with heads
that don't move (HP, Apple Tape Backup, etc). Fiddling with the
firmware for QIC drives with serpentine recording is more difficult
