No, it isn't. About 15 years ago I set out to recreate the necessary
letters and digits from the font for one of the PDP-11 sites. With some
small experience of font design I quickly realised it's quite different
from Helevetica in a number of aspects, and it took me a while to get it
right. In fact I'm not sure I got it exactly, but Ned Batchelder did,
so I never went back to it. My early attempts at PDP-11 logos are at
http://www.dunnington.info/public/PDP-11/ if you want a laugh.
