Randy,

Thank you for the URLs.  I've always used "findu" in the past but now 
I'll begin
using the New (to me) URL that you've used to confirm my position.
I'll also reduce the time between transmissions now that my testing seems
to be complete. (Perhaps I'll begin testing the Smartbeaconing that Bob
suggested.)
Randy and Bob, you two have really been a great help.  Thank you again.
