RXV21 question

OK, this may be obvious to the experts here, but I haven't a clue: can a DEC
RXV21 RX01 / RX02 floppy controller be used with non-DEC floppy drives, using
the standard DEC RT11 driver? By non-DEC I mean ordinary SSSD or SSDD Shugart,
Siemens, or Qume 8" floppy drives.

I recently saw a project where someone uses a Linux PC to act as a RX02 floppy
for a PDP-11 system. That got me thinking: if I can use the RXV21 with foreign
floppy drives, I already have a pair of 8" floppy drives that I could use.
This would be VERY handy and save me some $$$.

OK experts, what is the verdict?

Thanks in advance!
