Sorry John, I didn't see that reply.  I'm having a devil of a time with 
mail to all of the reflectors to which I subscribe turning up as false

much satisfaction.  If I can remember what I used for a search string, 
I'll take another look.

That's not surprising as the demand for it is so small. 
I believe Texas Towers is carrying a custom copy of 8267 and "I think"  
it is US made
