If you don't find somebody closer, you could try Max Burnet in Australia
( He has an extraordinary
collection of DEC machines, arguably the best in the world, and - as this
web-page puts it - "plans to use his museum collection to provide for
porting of old media" along with its other historical and educational
uses. He's also a hell of a nice guy, which certainly provides many points
in his favor. :) :)
