Hi Jim,

So far no troubles.  Besides, other than my landlady, nobody else knows I'm
operating a ham station (I don't want to deal with the nonsense I dealt with
at the University of Wisconsin in the 80s, when the Cryogenics lab blamed us
[W9YT- the ham club station] for every little glitch in their electronics
sensors [even when we weren't on the air they "just knew it was us" causing
the problems]).  So, I operate stealth.

An SB-200 for some oomph - hmmm that's a good idea.  I wish I'd thought
about that. Thanks!  I'll keep an eye out for one as a "just in case I need
to use it", in the ususal places (swapfests, ePay, etc.).  As of now it'll
be a work in progress (I hit a major cycle of bills, and money is tight at
the moment).

Ellen - AF9J
