Hmmm, Joe, if I am not mistaken, you were very much against SO2R being in 
the unassisted catagory.  I tried to find some of the old emails, but lost 
them somewhere.  Maybe I'm wrong on that.

What is the difference between having another receiver running Skimmer in 
the 'magic circle' and having another receiver running in the 'magic circle' 
(you know, just a 'boy and his radio') and you are looking for mults the old 
fashioned way?  Skimmer should not be assisted and SO2R should be assisted? 
I'm confused now.  73
