Jim, I'm going to send to you offlist Rod's first letter making the request, in which he explains all that. smile In his second letter, this morning, he gives a bit more info but less detail about the notations, and I've forwarded that to this list. My forward to you offlist will be from my hifriend@xxxxxxxxx email, so please watch for it in case it goes into your spam folder.
