Hi Steve,

	I also told Tom about the PIEXX unit but I had trouble
getting the PIEXX unit working with a 940 and CT contest logging 
software ver 9.27 and 9.47. I couldn't get the bandmap t work and
the unit bandswitched intermittanly so after consultation
with PIEXX, I just returned the unit.

	I wonder if anyone else reading this thread got their
940 and CT program working using the PIEXX unit
