I’m moving and need to downsize a bit. I have 2 of the DEC short racks. One has a 11/34 and the other is a uVax 3600 with a RA82 on top. I haven’t tried to power up the 34. The uVax works but the RA82 on top doesn’t. However I have several RA90’s that work with it. I saw a version of 4.3 BSD

A late follow up on this topic. I got my IBM 1627 running. Actually it is not mine, it belong to my father that got it used for his home built computer somewhere around 1977. It became a project that never was finished... There are still some simple drawings he did on how to interface it.
