Hi Tom, get a hold of Rich, K2RW. He is a regular visitor
to FP land. Unfortunately, I don't have an E-mail address,
but he can be reached on the East Coast DX CLuster at his own
node, K2RW.  I hope this helps.

It's not a bug...It's a feature!

Please tell us you are not relying on packaged radio to read code!

Pass 'em by till Sunday or better yet work and then ask for their call
while the whole world is listening. If you dupe them, so what.

The price the guy pays for not IDing. Guess they feel they work enough
to make up for this theoretical higher dupe rate or more realistically,
you passing them by.

Don't think you are flaming Doc. Tell it like it is. Isn't that what
this forum is for?
