These issues were edited by Randy Stein and generated at a time when the KR Newsletter had become a real rag.  We ceased “publication” when Monte Miller took over the KR Newsletter and started doing a much better job.


 We depend on YOUR contributions (articles, dummy, not money).  This is your opportunity to show off your ideas, airplane, or technical knowledge, and share it with others.  Write something up in Microsoft Word (if possible) or something similar using the Word 2000 template at ,or the rtf version at ,  and submit it to Mark Langford for inclusion into a future issue.  Please compress and resize photographs to minimize download time for those with slow connections..  You can usually do this with the software that came with your digital camera, or use something like IrfanView (free) or PaintShop.  Lview,  or Cyberview.


Thanks a lot!
