Yep.  I backed up the RD52 in a new-to-me MicroPDP-11 and it took hours.

Has anyone done any console serial port hacking for speed on Qbus or
Unibus?  On something integrated like a KDF11-B it might not be so
easy, but maybe a DLV11J or a DL11W?

I'd think hitting 115200 would be really sweet, if everything can keep
up.  Totally worth some experimentation to see what part gives out at
ludicrous speed.
