I can see John looking over W0UA's shoulder during a hot run of
JA's....subtly whispering:

"Use the force, George...........coooooooohhhhh"

and of course, George's response:

"The Obie One station, your callsign again - dozo"

Not long ago, John posted a new E-Mail address.  I saved it as 
   "john.devoldere@innet.be" rather than what you show.  you might try 
that one and see if your luck improves!  Thanx and 73...

     Does anyone have a spare room at the Stouffers Hotel?  I'd 
     prefer my own room rather than a spare bed or bathtub to crash 
     Many thanks,

     P.S.   I never did see my first message come back - sorry if 
     this is a dupe.

The "widget" u refer to is known as a sailboat tension gauge, used by 
sailors to maintain proper balance of tension in rigging.  I've used the Loos 
tension gauge for years to set the tension in my guys!  Purists may 
argue that sailboat tension gauges are inaccurate, since they are calibrated 
for 7 x 7 stainless steel wirerope; however, they can be recalibrated 
for 7 strand guy wire with a dynamometer.  The clear advantage of the  
tension gauge is ease of use and speed of application!  I can do a 
routine check and retensioning of all 72 of my 5/16" guy wires in an 
afternoon hours with my sailboat tension gauge.  It would take days with a 

My tension gauge is manufactured by Loos & Co., PO Box 7515, Naples FL 33942
phone: 813-774-5667

There are two versions of the Loos Tension gauge, one for small diameter 
cables and one for 3/16" - 9/32" cables.  The latter version (known as 
Model B) is the one u want.  With only a slight modification it will work 
perfectly well on 5/16" guy wire.

The Loos Tension Gauge is commonly stocked by sailboat oriented businesses.
My Boat/U.S. catalog lists the item as:

     Loos Tension Gauge
     Model 90   - 3/16" - 9/32" cable
     Boat/U.S. Item Number 338584-10
     List price  $ 40.95 
     Member price:  $34.75

---------- Forwarded message ----------

It seems to me that a widget to measure exactly that is made for tensioning the 
standing rigging on sail boats.  An old friend with a trailerable boat was 
telling me about his aquisition of just such an instrument -- but I wasn't 
listening very carefully...  Any sailors out there want to comment?
