Your talking about RK03 drives. I think they were actually made by Diablo

It looks like the rack in question also contains a DG Nova of some sort.

I want some RK03s too. I have no disks for my PDP-11/20.

I haven't seen any on eBay ever, and I think that only a few people on the
list have them. I doubt I'll ever be able to find one.
