   Late October saw the arrival of a Conrad RDS Manager which is
simply plugged into the audio output from the TM-1001.  However,
a near-non-existant Oct-Dec Es season saw it put to little use  
for several months.  Strong in-state tropo hampered the Leonids,
Geminids, and Quadrantids.                                      
   The Feb 13 event even provided some 144-MHz Es to southern   
California from here (and 222-MHz from the Corpus Christi area  
to there).
