Thanks to those who helped and advised; I discovered a problematic pin
on the TU58 10-pin DIP connector. With this fixed, TU58EM worked
correctly and the console code loaded. The CPU passes diags as far as
the RL02 test; not surprising as there's no RL controller or drive -
or the special diag pack! - installed.

On a point of order... is there any reason an Emulex UCxx Unibus SCSI
controller wouldn't work in this machine? Anyone with any experience
there? If it emulates an MSCP disk closely it should Just Work? I'm
thinking a SCSI2SD solution to give me a reliable one-box system...
