There are 4 TU10's within 50ft of my desk ;-) We have one hooked up to
our PDP-9 but so far have not put it to any use not having found any
tapes in dire need of reading. We have run the diagnostins witha scratch
tape though.

I'd be willing to try and read tapes here in europe but bearing in mind
that we have not exercised the drive I would like to start out with
tapes not containing any valuable data..
