[TechAssist] Re: 220v: End of Discussion

Sorry All, I'd likew to add that you can investigate Tesla at
http://www.pbs.org/tesla/   or  http://www.amasci.com/tesla/tesla.html  and
Lee deForest  at the Inventors Hall of Fame. BTW If I'm not mistaken Lee
deForest's widow was awarded a large settlement a couple of years ago
because of the unauthorised use of his patents regarding FM transmission by
a company whose spokesman was a dog and had a lot invested in AM and feared
that AM would be killed by FM, ever notice that music isn't played much on
AM anymore (the realm of Talk Radio) except for the oldies. Merry Christmas
