there is a program at: www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/firmware/drives/old that will read out the 6530 ROM. The comment has the device numbers reversed. Since the program uses the controller's RAM to transfer the data, it must be written out on a different drive.

Looking at my photos of it’s insides, it has Micropolis drives (”Micropolis Disk Storage Module Model No. 1006-II”) and the UK3 is 901483-03, dated 5081 (I think, the photo is rather fuzzy).
