Thank you Sir: That was about what I was eluding to but some are like the SAY NA TO NO CODERS. Its about keeping the hobby alive and participation by all. As soon as I am setteled in my new home here in TN I'll find an old rig and jump in.  I will also endeavor to pass the Extra Class just to say I did it.
