Jerome Fine replies:
I don't have any VAX systems, so no trade is possible.
But I am in Toronto (H. Fine at 2 Inglis Gate), so give
me a phone call.
If your system is 2 feet wide, it sounds like a 19" rack
in a low cabinet. Does it have an RL02?
The TK70 is a 5 1/4" DLT type tape drive which uses DEC
CompacTape II media. I don't think the front cover
could be missing, but I am not a hardware type person.
Do you know which model of PDP-11?
And I have been asking for someone to pick up my PDP-11
systems, but no one has answered. Still, I can't see
that it would be reasonable to toss it if it is Qbus.
