  Hi all.

I need some advise.
In 3 weeks time Edward and I drive to Italy (some 1100 km)
to pick up several PDP-11/70 parts.
I have the oppertunity to drag 2 RM03 massbus drives and
some packs back home. Now I know already that these drives
weigh about 200 kilo, have a disk capacity of 67 Mb and
are really power-hungry: at 240 V/50 Hz. stand-by is 3.5 A.
running they consume 11.5 A. and rush-in current is 22 A.

My experience is that DEC tend to give high numbers for the
power consumption, but do these drives eat that much current?

Are they worth preserving? Or should I leave them where they are?
Next to the 11/70 is looks great (IMHO) but I would love to hear
some opinions from other collectors.

- Henk.
