So I'm trying to look into this (BC11 cables being unobtainium these days, at
least at prices which are less their weight in gold).
I see 'three' different kinds of 'UNIBUS to cables' cards listed:
M9014 UNIBUS to 3 H854s
M9015 3 H854s to UNIBUS
M9031 UNIBUS to 3 3M cables for 11/74
M9042 UNIBUS to 3 H854, Dual
I assume the M9014/M9015 are a pair, one used at the start of the cable, and
one at the end?
Does anyone know the difference between these three, and is my guess about the
M9014/M9015 being a pair correct? (I did look for documentation to answer
these, but couldn't find any - although maybe I didn't look in the right places.)
