Of course.  Mine is set up that way - both in the same 19" rack (plus a
PDP-11/05 and a DECCassette drive and other stuff I could fit it).  But
remember that the original correspondent at first mentioned only ONE
backplane (singular), so I thought it prudent to point this out lest he
connect the TU10 to the UNIBUS with heaven only knows what bad things
could happen results.  Once he read my note, he provided more info which
did indicate he had two different backplanes.
