G'day John,

I got a little excited and pressed the send button before I had added the

The reference to "re-inventing the wheel"  actually came from conversations
with our regulatory authorities when I was trying to convince them to grant
me an experimental licence.  (Over here in VK land we have to make
individual submission for a Scientific Assigned Licence to operate on LF).
That was the counter argument put forward by a representative of the
regulatory authority.   He said there was no justification for granting an
experimental licence as I hadn't shown that any NEW work was to be attempted
and the area was completely covered by the commercial enterprises.   It was
only when I pointed out that I wanted to conduct narrowband experiments
which were not existing in the commercial world (I leave NASA out of
this!!!) that I was granted an experimental licence (after forking out $400
Aus for the privilege - which hurt a great deal!!!).

Anyway, I am sure that everyone (of both views) is sick of me pratting on
about this.   I think we all want to get back to the business of exchanging
views without fear of belittlement and in a spirit of encouragement no
matter how modest each of our efforts are.   I know I sure do!!!
