These are sturdy and notoriously expensive aerospace grade 38999 connectors. We had to slightly machine modern 38999’s male plugs to fit in these, but by in large it still fits the modern standard. I have one of the PSA trays it connects to, trying to make it work again! Nice and noble hardware

Rod, others, I have so far been unsuccessful getting my CQD220A for SCSI HD, and RQDX3 for floppy to coexist in an 11/83, at least with bsd2.11. I am eager to hear whether you get both controllers working in the same box, and how. Mark Mark G. Thomas (m...@misty.com), KC3DRE > On May 18,

Hi Guys    Well the RD53 in my 11/93 finally clapped out.    The CPU is a late model KDJ11-E with everything on the one board.    So its a switch from MFM to SCSI Drives.    A CQD220A will drive the hard disk and the RQDX3 will stay to look after the RX50    I've  put
