Figured it out, did you?  Yes, Dave's retired from the State Department and
back home in WVa.  I'm trying to talk him into writing a few newsletter
articles for me about his many travels... he had some great stories to tell
and they shouldn't be lost to posterity!

And now, the 2003 Version of the Jack Bogut Memorial Joke:
Why aren't they serving beer at PNC Park this year?
Because (drumroll please), the Pirates lost the Opener!

Well,  I rcv'd a QSL card from him a few years back when he
was still in Dar es Salaam,  Tanzania!  Unfortunately,  he tells
me his wandering the globe days, putting neat DX on the air,
are over.  He is now settled where there is good drinking
water,  food,  family,  etc.  Good for him,  and I know he is
going to love his precious Orion!!

I am only operating one vicariously-- reading the PDF manual
download,  and locating the knobs and buttons via a photo
on Ken Hopper's web site,  hi.
