Jerome Fine replies:

This card is NOT designed for the BA23 box. Rather
it looks like the type that would be used with a BA213

But, the price seems correct (if it works) if you are able
to take off the handles and add the see needed for the
1/2" spacing on a BA23 box.

Perhaps someone else can comment if it is a true SCSI
host adapter for a Qbus system that will handle SCSI
drives of the 4 GByte flavour?

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
