I've seen on. Once. And no I didn't get it.
It was part of a thing called a 'Gamma-11' which was a controller for
some kind of medical imaging system. The hardware was an 11/34 with a
VS60, a couple of RL drives (I was asked to sort out the RL11, which I
did), and some special interface boards. Curiously, the latter were Qbus,
connected up via a DW110B. There was a BA11-K box with a 4-slot Unibus
backplane and a 4 slot Qbus backplane it it, linked by the DW11-B.
