    There's a Qualstar 3412S 9-track tape drive on Ebay, in Rochester:


    The nice thing about this model is that it handles:

 	800bpi NRZI	R/O
 	1600bpi PE
 	3200bpi DPE
 	6250bpi GCR

    However, 800bpi NRI is read-only.  The seller indicates that the unit is 
untested, but maybe someone could convince them to at least power it on to see 
if it passes the self-test.  Assuming it works, this would be a good unit for 
someone looking for a versatile 9-track drive.
