<The person I've been getting a bunch of DEC stuff off of has a whole pil

VMS does support Tu58 on vax on a serial port(it is a serial device).

The real question is whats the target media? RX50, RX33, RX02? If one of
those three the 11/44 can do RX02 and if you have a q-buss PDP-11 with a
DLV11j or any other serial port at 176500 you can hang the TU58 off that
and use RT-11 to do the tansfer.
