shit happens.  I suppose now I'll have to type up something to send to 
the list, since, I'm sure, there are going to be some curious people who 
wanna know what we were doing at Otis' place, and with his station...

you know, now that you mention it, it seems like I remember *almost* 
hearing some atmospherics when Perry, Jimmy and I were in there, and 
first had the thing turned on, but then Perry was in front of it, and 
turned the RF gain all the way up (normally the proper thing to do, to 
hear noise) and didn't think any more about it.

Looking forward to Pictures.

Did you see the Dayton pix?

Good to see you yesterday, and glad you had the chance to get on the 
air.  I know yer busy, but it seems a shame that one has to travel 100 
miles (Perry) and 200 miles (me) to get some activity going over there.
