As I stated (see my original comments quoted below) I was not making a
complaint nor did I say Jim was wrong.  I also appreciate all the work
Ken, Jim, and the others do to keep CT so great.  I was confused. 
Since several others asked about this same matter it seemed I was not
the only one confused.  I merely wanted to point out that the info on
the web site was out dated so others may not also get confused.  Not
all CT users are subscribed to the reflector and may just follow
instructions shown on the web site without knowing there has been a
change.  I was just trying to help and was not complaining.
If I came across as a grumpy user as K4OJ asserts I apologize.  That
was not my purpose.
I would appreciate any comments from others if this is not the purpose
of the reflector (helping each other and keeping the information
current) and if I went about it wrong how should I have presented my
Alan, K6ACZ
