A reminder to those that participated in the Top-Band Distance
Challenge...Stew Perry Contest in December 1996.  Logs are due by Jan.
28, 1997.

Logs can be e-mailed to:

tbdc at contesting.com

REMINDER - It is requested that logs be sent in ASCII format.  If paper
logs are sent, they will be considered check-logs.

There was an earlier post asking for power levels of certain stations. 
Due to a hard-drive problem on my side, I need to have the following
stations report their power level again..sorry.


Also because of the data loss, I need AJ6T...I believe..to resubmit his

For those that sent in BIN files.  If there is any way that you could
get an ASCII version of the log and e-mail it in, it would be
appreciated.  Send it to the above address.

If there are any questions, please direct them to me directly.

Subject: Fiber optic contest computer networks
Message-ID: <199701261852.AA25754 at ns-1.csn.net>

A few years ago, at Dayton, I believe, someone talked about networking
computers in a multi-op situation with fiber optic links.  And I believe
that the networking components were offered for sale.

Does anyone know:
1)  Who was responsible for the design and marketing?
2)  If they are still available?
3)  How they have performed?

Any information--especially technical details-- would be appreciated.

Thanks--John  W0UN
