TU56 Restoration Project
In February and March 2005, I acquired a TU56 DECtape unit and a TC11 DECtape controller from two
different sources. It turns out that the TU56 unit actually belonged to the same person who had
the TC11 up until about two years ago. Both units were missing a couple cards and were quite dusty,
but otherwise appeared to be mostly intact. My goal is to restore the TU56/TC11 to working order
and connect it to the PDP-11/40 system. This page will be updated as this project progresses.
