Hi Paul,

That is exactly my concern, thank you for the legal view on it.  Can you
think of any way in which this could be approached?  I have also
contacted the ARRL Volunteer Attorney, whom I know as well.  What a
sticky mess this stuff is...  I just want to use my radio!  Thank you
for your time in this BTW.
Thanks and 73's,
