Hi Ed,

I loved your comments and info.  Welcome to my club of.... all those hams
who have "truly lost it" but for want of anything better to do with their
lives, are given to polishing aluminum antenna elements. While I truly share
in you endeavors, I really doubt my own sanity in this matter.  Yet, I have
to admit... they sure do look pretty when they're all shiny and the sun hits
them just right!

Thanks again,

Roger, k2JAS
