Vince, I've been asking the same thing for years; as others have.

I hope we are getting great financial support from the fm'ers.  I 
assume the reason for fm is the assumed cost of ssw/cw rigs in

I have no idea of member numbers, but assume that graph could be made 

I've never been a big donor, but I've stopped my pittances since the 
FM promotions....
