Paul, did you receive the CRA's comments?

Also, I would like to place some editorial material in this issue of the 
Collins Journal - therefore, if you wish to forward me a "guest editorial," 
it would be most welcomed.  Lots of Collins owners, like myself, want to 
protect our use of our Collins on AM.

Thank you.
