Ummm, actually the plate cap I'm waiting for, is for one of my 807s.  But
Ill say this - you're tempting me to do just that.  I'll think about it.
Mail arrives here at 2:30 PM. Rodger, WQ9E, lives about 170 miles southwest
of me.  He mialed it out on Tuesday or Wednesday. If the US Mial is
effieicnt, it should arrive today.  If it isn't I probably will yank one of
the plate cap clips from the Scout, since I probably won't see the mailed
plate cap clip until Monday.
