CH10 on a KL10

I'm pretty sure that the MC KL10 was attached to the CHAOSNet via the I/O -11; there was never a PDP-10 I/O bus CHAOSNet interface on it. (Not that one couldn't have been done, of course.) Jnc (talk) 10:06, 24 August 2021 (CEST)

That is consistent with archived source code. AI and MC both had an IO-11 front end; AI's through the Rubin 10-11 interface, MC's through DL10. Only ML had an IO bus device called CH10. DM had no Chaosnet. Larsbrinkhoff (talk) 11:17, 27 October 2021 (CEST)
The article page says "SIMH's KA10 and KL10 simulates a CH10", but this is only for emulation, and mostly because there no DL10 support in the emulator Larsbrinkhoff (talk) 11:20, 27 October 2021 (CEST)
