Thanks for the response!

The group moved on to
https://groups.io/g/UCSDPascal
because the new Yahoo owner (Verizon?) decided to remove all user content in 2019.

A spidered image (from 2019) can be downloaded here

or here

(with meta info)

Two utilites looked good - but failed on the skewed images - so i needed additional steps (see post above)

a) PSYSREAD (Delphi, with PAS source) complete with a nice GUI (Windows only?)
[included in the file dump from 2019]

b) command line utilites from Jefferson Computer Museum ('bu.exe' = UCSD burst files to disk)
[must be obtained from web site ?]

I finally got around to examining the Rainbow disks I won last September.
They have Windows for Rainbow that looks fairly standard "7 disk" collection (the one that has both VAXmate and Rainbow drivers that people here have reported issues with).
Utility disks for the DEC (3 different kinds), CHS, DM220 and ACT winchesters. I'm unfamiliar with ACT, but I think it was some custom thing because there is also CP/M for ACT and MS-DOS for ACT "master" disks.
And a lot of different application software. I'll see about organizing it when I have time to read all these in.
Oh, and a lot of blank disks that might be the personal backup of somebody's computer from 1986 (the labels are unclear, and some labels have fallen off due to the march of time.

It could be useful to document the registers accessed.

If i remember correctly, registers not wired are logged (when a certain log level is set)...
