Yes. The RK07 is double the capacity.

I don't think so. The RK06 and RK07 used the same design for the packs, 
but the RK07 packs twice the capacity. I believe it is just doubling the 
number of tracks. But of course, that means that RK06 packs do not match 
what RK07 drive expects from track width and number of tracks.

I didn't know. When did we get one, and from where? We had one many 
years ago that I dumped. We might still have the packs from that one around.
