PDP 8 peripherals

Well, I have a 8E and 8L, and probably a 8F and 8M on the way, and yet
all I have for peripherals so far are RX02's... It takes a lot of
searching, unfortunately. And occasionally a lot of waiting.

By the way, to vaguely stay on topic, is there more than one type of
RK05 cartridge (aside from sectoring). I bought a few 16 sector RK05
packs, that have some sort of drive alignment programs on them, which
I'm assuming I can reuse as regular media. Will these work in all
types of RK05?
