Hi Stefan,
Well I'm definitely interested in having one when it's ready and I for one 
will not be throwing darts at it.
I have some time off from work coming up and I'm hoping to finally finish 
setting my station back up so I can start throwing some "RF darts" at the 
real AO-51 and AO-7 and VO-52 as well. I like em all!!!
Michael, W4HIJ
