Hello. I have no VAX of my own, I'm afraid, but as a child I had the opportunity to use several VAX/VMS systems, and I've wondered for a long time what it's like to set one up, so I'm planning on trying to use simh.
I've just signed up with Connect, and will order the hobbyist VAX media sometime next week -- I'm not expecting to be able to get licenses terribly soon anyway.
EDIT: Well, the price for getting started went up by $50 less than a week before I got here, but I've decided it's probably worth it to me anyway. I've signed up at Connect, and ordered the VAX media here. When it arrives, I'll see if my membership number has been sent yet.
I'm worried that the price is going to discourage people from getting involved, though.

malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
