Thanks Rusty :) Let me clarify that between the ages of 13 and 18 I was hit 
on by two presumably gay or pedophilic (or both) adult men who were licensed 
radio amateurs.  Neither of them accomplished any illegal activity with me 
and I assume they move freely today.

How's that for talking the long way around :)

It was not a Big Deal.

Mark, N5OT
