For test purposes, you could use a smaller Qbus memory board. When the
uVAX-I was new, not everyone could afford 4MB to go in it (or a disk
larger than 10MB). I think ours had 2MB, but I could be mistaken.

If you have some PDP-11 Qbus memory lying about, say, 512K, that would
be enought to get started. Conversely, you could test your 4MB card in
a PDP-11. It's all the same before PMI.
