This is message number 2 concerning my e-mail address.

I am Hank Kahrs, K2UVG, jkahrs@delphi.com and NOT W4ETO or any way connected
with ETO.  Brian did NOT give the address for ETO, you just assumed it was.
I had commented on my ETO 91B and made reference to Ray Heaton and you
thought I was Ray.

I cannot help you with an e-mail address for ETO  or W4ETO or Ray Heaton.

73, Hank/K2UVG

Hi Ed;

Our local VE group (Berkeley, CA) see a number of "No Code" failures at 
each test session.  I think most retest until they pass.

Gee...when I took my GENERAL (1966) and ADVANCED test exams, I used the ARRL
license manual which had ALL THE QUESTIONS and ALL THE ANSWERS.  Hmmmm.....

Subject: 1000MP and CT
Message-ID: <>

I spent this morning reworking my com ports and trying to get CT to
interface with the rig; no luck.  I changed to port 1, irq 4 for the radio
control, set the comtsr1 for 4800 baud, 8n2, and the "CAT" light on the rig
just blinks non-stop.  Works fine with DXBase..is anyone else using the
1000MP with CT interfaced?  I'm getting frustrated.

Hello Guys !

I wish to edit a 30 minutes video and a short video clip about contest stations
without business purpouses.

I work in the Italian TV (RAI) as a producer and I can edit all the standards
with a non linear computer editing line...so no problem with NTSC or PAL.

Please, send to my address your videos...I'll put them in a 30 minutes film that
I'm building. You will receive a copy of the final video.

I tried to do likewise some years ago....but I putted the announcement in the
BBS network and received an answer only from the big contest station PA3COM.
I need
many cassettes to do a real good job and I believe that the cq-contest
mailing list
will work better !

I prefere BETACAM cassettes but VHS are also OK if of good quality.

73s and have good DX from IT9GSF/IG9A (1st world highclaimed score CQWW SSB
40 MTS).

Subject: 160 meter Contest Certificates status
Message-ID: <199605252344.TAA24591@borg.mindspring.com>

I am working on the 1995 Cq WW 160 certificates and have about 30% complete.
Have patience.

We have gotten paid for 16 plaques so if you sponsor a plaque and have not
sent your $40 to Nancy NK4U please do so now!   Several sponsors are
dropping out so will need volunteers to fill their sponsorship.  These are
mainly zone awards or continent awards.

I will show the top 80 scores on both modes regardless of class for 1996
claimed scores.  I am also listing the top 5 clubs claimed scores, too.
This will go to CQ next Tiuesday for August 1996 CQ print.

I have this file in Microsoft Works (planning to move to ACCESS next year),
ASCII and WordPerfect 5.1 and am looking for the best way to put on the
several web pages.  Any help is appreciated.   Probably Ascii text.
