   This was part of some kind of test staion. The computer part of it
consisted of four 6+ foot tall 19" racks that were bolted together. I
wanted to get more the cables and such out of it but they dumped it on it's
back and there was no way to stand it back up again! It had a couple of
RL-01 or 02 drives in it along with a PT reader/punch (that was smashed
:-( Also a reel to reel tape drive and some other DEC parts. The rest were
Data Couplers and interfaces. The test equipment itself was in other racks
and I never saw it.
