Thanks for the thread.

I have I Plessy 6700 PDP 11/24 work-alike, But its native drive is SCSI.
I will Check into alternate controllers / formatters.

DEC Model numbering is greek to me

Yeah, sure, folks have been doing this for about a decade and a half.

At a minimum, before getting any further, you're going to need some
way to format arbitrary MFM drives to what the DEC controllers will
expect for a low-level format, either a VS2000 with its built-in
console formatter, or one of the DEC XXDP formatters (ZRQB for the
RQDX2, ZRQC for the RQDX3) and a PDP-11 to run them on.
