Jim and all interested parties,

Ted/KC3OL had that diagram Chuck?WA)ZHH developed posted on his web site 
before he switched to focusing on Lofer.  You can go there and email him 
to see if he still has the file.


Chuck did have a stroke and had a bit of time recovering.  I did talk to 
Chuck a while back and he is doing better.  That was probably a couple 
of months ago and haven't heard him since.
