Thanks for the info. I sure was wondering there what had happened. Guess
the sensitivity might be the problem. I never had any trouble from the
high rise at Oregan Inlet till this trip.

I hope at some point a digi path that will work anywhere will be resolved
from all the changes that have been made. Concerns over congestion seems
to have disrupted the travelers ability to get back to home area. Well, we
will see what comes of it all after things have a chance to settle down. I
would hope that at some point the traveler will be able to set a path and
be seen anywhere. Again thanks for the help. 73's << John
