Please be aware that some sicko is generating email messages
with a virus attachment with the title of a thread here.
Today I got one from a thread to which I posted only yesterday,
being the "riding the RF gain" thread. The giveaway of these is
that they all seem to start with an underscore in front of the
The one in question came from the address "Manuel de Aguilar"
<_ea8zs at jet.es>, but I am sure it didn't come from ea8zs of
course. So the message is if you get an email with an apparent
address starting with an underscore, delete the attachment
immediately( fortunately I did) Watch out!

[Actually, it probably did come from EA8ZS. He probably was infected with the
new "goner" virus. Keep your PC up to date with virus checking software!
