There certainly are paper tape interfaces - just about any serial card will
do for that. If you want 20mA and reader control, a good choice is the DLV11-F
or the plain old DLV11.

You *aren't* working in a vacuum, you know :-). For the past several
years, Bob Supnik's emulators have come with Unix V5 through V7
binary distributions (see ftp://ftp.digital.com/pub/DEC/sim/ ),
and Warren Toomey has an excellent archive available as well as
easy terms for the Unix source license you'll need to access it
(see http://minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au/ and click on "PUPS". Note
that Adfa is offline for the summer holidays - I think they're
back up on Jan 3.)
