AHHH, sorry, i screwed that one up.

Two birds with L-band up (1Cliff and 1D), but not the one with the 
linear (1E).

Somehow I can't get that straight in my head (this isn't the first time 
I've mixed that up).

So many Foxes of various band/mode combos on the way! I suppose in a way 
this is a good problem!

Sorry, Jerry (and everyone else).  I hope I didn't cause too much 
confusion there.  And thank you very much for the correction.
