About Me Grew up camping and backpacking in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. Then went to the east coast for grad school...then job...then family. Twenty years later we were able to reach escape velocity from Washington DC and relocated the entire family to the PNW. I've fallen in love with the Cascades as much as the Rockies. And we spend 4 weeks every year in Montana near Glacier.

Re: Hey, Where's Passive Solar?

Re: Re: New communication device
Roger that was my thinking exactly. Nothing on their website indicated that if they didn't receive FCC approval that they would refund your money. But interesting concept if it works.
