Most of these bipolar PROMs had many 'crosses', but for reading only. The 
programming methods are manufacturer-specific. Once programmed, the chips 
behave identically, so the PDP8/a (or watherver) doesn't care.

So make sure whatever programmer you use can program the particular chip 
you are getting, and not just one that's a cross for it. Then you shoupd 
have no problems.
