Count me in.  I've sent my subscription request, so should be on the list soon.
:-)  As for promotion, I will write up a small article for our club news, which
is widely heard/read around Melbourne and may spread across Australia
(actually, we have worldwide coverage via the Internet, and any stray 10m
openings :) ).

Good idea.

Hopefully.  We need to do the feasibility study, and also raise awareness among
the experimenters.  Typically, there are more operators than experimenters
these days, which means we'll have plenty of people to test the rig... if we
can find enough to design it! :-)
