Yes. But I asume it doesn't matter, as the QDSS isn't a DMA device (?)
and maybe can't generate interrupts at all?

Most likely you will have to solder the BC18Z yourself. But I think I
can provide a LK201 keyboard and a VSxxx rodent. I can throw in some
QBus stuff like a 8 port serial mux or a TQK50, maybe a TK50 drive too.
But TK50 tape drives are as reliable as RD53 disks... I recommend to get
a TK70. Much better.
