Other  news and information:  From  Bill Krause comes information that  the
ANARC BBS is off line while Bill moves from Minnesota to Illinois.   He said
that the BBS should be  operating by September 15th, but we do  not  yet  have
the  new  phone  #  for  the BBS.  *** Bill Cole has a  data base program for
the Commodore 64 and 128 (in 64 mode) to provide  a SWL's  database.  It
modes for stations.  The database can hold  upto 1200 listings, and is compiled
nto "P" code  which increases the  speed  of its  operation.  Contact  Bill at
the disk is $10  in  the  US and Canada and $12 airmail  overseas (US monies
only). *** Ira  Richolson asks where the DiaLog mail should be sent, since the
address  was left off the  column at times.  All loggings should be sent to the
to pull up the  header properly on the computer so  the address  gets left
off.  My  apologies for  that problem. *** Ken Suess writes  about  the low
loggings of late and high local QRM.  Activity has been  low, and  I've had bad
local QRN/M problems myself.  I hope things get  better and your  radio time is
mproved. *** Joe  Wosik writes asking  why the new stations  are not using the
mail drops.  Good question!  I  don't  have  an  answer  for  you,  but perhaps
concern for their  security. ***  I also received a letter from a new member in
Australia  who was wanting radio stickers from AM/FM stations  in the US.  I
