I would guess that they are RK05, I just hauled 2 RL01's
into the garage. Further looking on the web leads me to
think that there maybe 3 card cages 2 standards and 1
enhanced with the keypad. There are also a bunch of disks
for the RL01.

I also found documentation for a PDP 11/05 in the pile and,
a box of 8" floppies, and a box of paper tapes. I didn't
notice a reader. There were also 2 bakplanes in a second
box and a bunch more cards which I'll list latter.

The 8" floppy drives are Morrows.

There is documentation for CROMEMCO fortran in the pile

Looking at the pile I'm thinking that there is still 1 rack

Will keeping them in an unheated garage cause much damage,
or should I make an effort to get the units to the basement.
