. The following info from Gord Hykle
This year's AC/TCA list is now available from me via E-mail
for anyone having the Micosoft Word or Word Perfect word
procesors. The four-page file of 39k bytes uses a normal style
in New Courier font size 9 (proportional letter spacing to get
column alignment). Page is Landscape 11" X 8.5", margins
1/4 in. top and bottom, .5" left and .2" right. All lines are
equal in length and terminated with a pargraph marker.
Each line can be deleted, copied, duplicated and moved as
items in a Word document. Adding a line to a page will bump the
bottom line to the next page but page 4 contains some extra
blank lines that can be deleted for each addtion made to
maintain the file length and not overflow to a page 5.
The file will arrive and be displayed with the Paragraph
Markers "on" to show these and spacing dots but they will not
print. I have left them on to assist in modifying data while
retaining line length. If you don't like them , shut
them off with the Para Markr button on the Standard Toolbar.
If you want copies via E-mail send me a request so I can
add your E-mail address to my address book and forward you
a copy. I use Compuserve and a 28.8 bps modem so the file
leaves here in less then a minute..
The lists are primarily of interest to active & retired Company
hams. Anyone who was ever a TCA or AC employee or spouse and
has a current Amateur Radio license may be listed with a full
postal address. But non-ham Pionairs will find many
old friends listed with their current full addresses sorted
by call signs in each of the regions. There is also available
a one-page list sorted by name with cross-reference to the
calls for those who do not know the ham"s call sign.
As always, I appreciate any info about address changes or
errors on the list.
. When next at the base in Montreal, call in at the Industry
Travel Bureau on the 5th floor of the new Admin building and
