two daysw ago, I aquired a microVAX II with a RA81 and a tape drive.
At the beginning, I thought that it was a half inch tape drive (toploader stype), but it turned out to be a special thing.
Model type is : MT500C, the "C" standing for a cache option (128KB). The drive dates back from 1986,
uses 24 tracks and can save 500 MB, which is way more than the 9-track reel tapes can store.
It can be connected to a pertec controller.
It seems to special because I couldn't find any information for it except for a german site from which obtained
the information I provided earlier.
Does anybody on the list knows anything about it ? Any experiences ? Documentation would certainly help.
I don't even know where to get media for this thing. I got it whitout any media.
