Mighty glad to become a member of this organization.  I look forward to many conversations in the near future.  Currently I'm working with Bill Bryan to find an A.W. 15 to add to my collection.  Incidentally, Norm you have been invaluable at helping me with my A.W. 23 and A.W. 12, dual dial and thank you for the invite.
