I think that the normal console for an 11/73 is built into the
CPU card. Should have a (berg?) connector (or is it two) on the
edge of the CPU card where the console port plugs in.
I'm not sure if the bootstrap will even look for another console

If they have this strange board as their console, they may
be using different boot roms, you you might have to swap
them too.

The CPU card should be almost identical to an 11/83 system.
Main difference is the speed of the clock, iirc.
