Someone in northern Maryland near the PA state border is looking for the

He has a DEC PDP-11/73 with a non-functional RD53 hard drive, and several
RSX-11M installation and backup tapes on TK50 tape cartridges.

He would like to migrate the RD53 image to modern media so that he can
(initially) utilize it via simh, and (eventually) use it in his 11/73 via a
hardware drive simulator.

Failing recovery of the RD53 data, He'd like to migrate the data from one
of the TK50 tapes to modern media.

Anyone ready, willing and able to do this?
