   If I recall correctly, the RX02 is a 256-byte block. Maybe you need
to add "ibs=256 obs=256" to the dd command.

   Also, if you have a Linux or *BSD system you can attach to the /45's
serial console, you can image the RT-11 diskettes straight to the PC
disk with vtserver's built-in "copy" function. I've used it to
duplicate a bootable BRUSYS floppy on the 11/84.
