The results to the first survey have been so gratifying and reinforces my 
belief that "old time radio" is alive and well!
12 Yes to all three survey questions and 0 No's.  Continue to submit to me.

Next survey submitted by Max, M0GHQ, which may be more relevant.
Thanks Max and thank you participants.
