Nah.... let's embarrass him.  He deserves it.  

At first, quite frankly, I didn't remember the contact.  But when I went back 
to my micro cassette tape, there he was, loud and clear...... except for one 
letter in his call that I couldn't make out.  When it occurred, I listened to 
that portion of the tape at least 15 times and tried several combinations.   
It's interesting to listen to the differences between my recording and his 
recording.  (Both are available on WAV files if anyone wants copies BTW!)

If he hadn't taken the time, effort and expense to send me the items, I 
wouldn't have my first offshore contact.  

Take a bow Greg........

PS:  SSVT from MIR:  anyone have a primer that can point me towards?!
