1) I replaced a few RD52's with RD53's. I probably have some RD52's laying around if he wants to go that route.
2) It's been too long so I don't remember, but don't you use normal pc floppies (5.25) and PUTR can format them?
3) Starting with RT11 is great. Adding TSX+ on top of that is Muy Bueno :) http://tsxplus.classiccmp.org

Subject: Current source for RX50 media?
A friend of mine who is mostly into Sun equipment recently purchased a
MicroPDP-11 from a State auction. He knows little about DEC gear, but I can help him there. His machine had the RD5X drives pulled by the State, but still has an RX50. Where can I point him to get a handful of RX50 floppies? I can help him with contents to put on them, but he needs media.
He's likely to start with RT-11. He could probably use 10-20 floppies to start.
