  Some Closing Thoughts

  As mentioned before, The CGC Communicator is going to vanish
from view for awhile when XO/Concentric/Connectnet dismantles a
portion of its uploading circuits on Wednesday.  In that regard:

  o  Please remove the e-dress cgc@cgc333.connectnet.com
  from your computers.  That address is being permanently
  discontinued.

  o  Bob Gonsett can now be reached in our consulting office at
  rgonsett (at) sbcglobal.net  -- or --  (760) 723-2700.

  While the Communicator is away:

  o  Bext is continuing as the official CGC Communicator
  archive site and a word/phrase search engine is available for
  your convenience.  Special thanks to Dennis Pieri:
  http://www.bext.com/cgc/

  o  The Tech Letters Website will continue to operate where
  reader letters are posted and invited, so do visit the Tech
  site from time to time.  Special thanks to Steve Blodgett
  for making Tech Letters possible:
  http://www.earthsignals.com/press/

  o  New translators are entering the FM band and many more LPFM
  stations are about to be unleashed.  Considering that the CGC
  Communicator's Apps & Actions sheet is going out of print, one
  wise investment now may be a subscription to CGC's FM Watchdog
  Service.  Please contact Bob Gonsett for further information:
  rgonsett (at) sbcglobal.net  -- or --  (760) 723-2700.

  o  The Los Angeles and San Diego SBE chapters will hopefully
  be great sources of local information while we are away.  Their
  Websites are:
  http://www.sbe47.org/  &  http://www.sbe36.org/

  o  The San Diego SBE newsletter gets a gold star for terrific
  local stories thanks to the yeoman efforts of Gary Stigall.
  By all means check out http://www.sbe36.org/

  o  A couple of Off Topic gems are included at the end of
  this newsletter for your enjoyment.  Off Topic is by far the
  most popular feature of Communicator newsletters and the
  items are a pure joy to review and put together.

  Thanks!

  steam-powered equipment.  It lives and breaths, we can see how
  it works and fix it when it breaks.  15 minutes of absolutely
  delightful video:
