Why not? generally building Qbus PDP11s is like the proverbial chinese
menu. One from column A one from B and One from C.
You need a Qbus box there are three common ones.
A cpu there are 4 common cheap ones.
Memory Various and second sources.
Serial IO one will do (or more) gobs of choices.
Common choices are DLV11F (single line) or DLV11J
four line. OR MXV11 (two serial and ram on one card)
The crunch item is storage as it's often big or
if reasonably current like anything SCSI not
common hence expensive.
