Some messages are getting bounced back to me....I'll try to keep up with the
more important ones.  May I suggest...don't use CC at all.

>After getting Lee's ok, I wanted to note that Dick Byrd, N4UQ, will do an

>So, despite the fretting about the fragility of the grids in both 8874s and

>Rather than put Dick's phone number here, I'll just say his e-mail address

>I have no affiliation with Dick -- I'm just a very satisfied customer.
