I'm sure he would like to see 14275 included in a CFZ.

The same way W1AW does.  More than once in a contest, I have been
merrily CQing away and W1AW comes on right on frequency with code
practice or bulletins or some such...all without inquiring if the
frequency was QRL.

Oh well.

I don't remember who keeps the CONTESTER e-mail list, so I'll have to post this
change of address. My new e-mail address for the account I want ham related
information sent to is:

Unfortunately, the MCI Friends & Family account does not allow customizing your
MCI Name as my
old account did, so W0OSK at is gone forever... I wasn't about to
spend $10 per month just to get reflector mail.

Is there one?  If not, do you want one?

Question about my new 1000MP...

There appears at first glance to be no way to control the sidetone volume.
If I turn on the monitor, I can turn down the sidetone.  However, with both
500hz filters enabled the sidetone disappears.  Any help appreciated.

Jeeeze - I think I've been insulted. At least the "nice guy" part!
