These vintage 9-track magnetic tape reels store computer data in densities from 800 bpi to 6250 bpi. Each old magnetic tape reel (10.5 inches in diameter) contains 1/2 inch magnetic tape that is 2400 feet in length. The amount of EBCDIC/ASCII data stored on a single 24-foot tape reel depends on the data block size and the recording density. There is a fixed gap of about 1/2 inch between each data block. As a general rule, the maximum amount of data stored on a single magnetic tape reel at 6250 bpi is 50 megabytes to 64 megabytes. Even though these vintage 9-track magnetic tape reels with straps (some in canisters) were previously used on an IBM 4969 Tape Unit attached to the IBM Series/1 computer and an HP-3000 computer, they can be used on any computer with a reel-to-reel 9-track tape drive. Buy two old 9-Track Magnetic Tape Reels and get one of equal value FREE. The following vintage 9-track tape reels are available:
a. IBM "Multi-System Tape" 9-track tape reels (6250 bpi) with straps. (14 IBM tape reels are available at $8.00 each.)
b. Certified 6250 bpi tape reels (Decade 9-track magnetic tapes) with straps. (17 Decade tape reels are available at $3.00 each.)
c. Misc. 9-track tape reels at 3200 bpi. (26 Misc. tape reels are available at $1.00 each.)
Each vintage 8-inch removable magnetic floppy diskette (Type 2D) has a maximum capacity of 1,212K bytes (double-density two-sided). These old IBM floppy diskettes measure 8 inches wide by 8 inches high. Floppy diskette Type 1 has a capacity of 303K bytes based on 74 tracks with a 512 sector size. Floppy diskette Type 2 has a capacity of 606K bytes based on 74 tracks with a 512 sector size. Even though these vintage 8-inch floppy diskettes were previously used on an IBM 4964 Diskette Unit attached to the IBM Series/1 computer, they can be used on any computer with an 8-inch floppy drive. Buy two old 8-inch floppy diskettes and get one of equal value FREE. The following vintage 8-inch floppy diskettes are available:

This attachment card provides an additional 128K bytes of processor memory for the IBM Series/1 4955 processor and measures 5" by 8" with four 24-pin connectors alone the edge opposite the handle. (2 cards are available).
The Racal-Vadic rack-mountable VA1616A Multiple Data Set Chassis measures 7"H x 19"W x 13"D and mounts in any standard 19-inch rack, such as the IBM 4997 rack enclosure. The VA1616 chassis front panel contains an array of 16 LED channel status indicators, a LED power alarm indicator, 8 LED diagnostic indicators, a row of 19 test switches and a channel select switch. The Racal-Vadic VA1616 communication chassis has two VA2010 Power Supplies (115 volts) for redundancy and supports 16 single-board modems or 8 double-board modems. Weight is 30 lbs. The following Racal-Vadic modems are included and can be removed from the VA1616 chassis:
a. Five VA3467 Triple Modems (1200 bps asynchronous). The Racel-Vadic VA3467 is compatible with the Bell 212A modem.
b. Two VA4840 modems (4800 bps synchronous).
