Hi Bob,

Shortly after I heard this I received an email from another reflector by 
someone who said he had mirrored LB's site. I'm trying to find the 
message where the new address was given but haven't found it yet. I will 
post if I can find it.

P.S. His web site was very quickly removed from public access and made 
into a Restricted (albeit currently free) Access. I think  Antennex's 
actions were extraordinarily crass and poorly timed. A picture and some 
memorial mumblings leading to a now locked up site - instantly breaking 
untold thousands of links. Yes I registered to regain access (altho I 
was already registered), but I shouldn't have had to do that. Now, all 
those google searches will lead to a "Register to gain Access" page - 
the kind I almost always hit the Back button on.  Hams surfing for 
antenna information will now have no inkling of the treasure trove 
behind the newly locked gates.

What I find particularly tasteless is the speed with which this action 
was undertaken. The great man's hands were barely cold and they moved to 
create the webpages and log-in protocol to move his site "off line." It 
is particularly egregious in that it is contrary to everything LB 
believed in and stood for.
