I have that exact combination (Computer Logics PCTD-16 Pertec tape
drive ISA bus interface board and Fujitsu M2444AC 9-track drive)
working. I wrote an MS-DOS application to use it to write a 2.11BSD
install tape for my 11/73.
I acquired my setup in a working configuration and didn't build the
interface cable myself. I don't have docs for the cable pinout, but I
could check the cable I have with a meter when I get a chance.
