Now I'm very curious . . .
Anyone know how Herbert Steen did it? Any Herbert Steen folks on the list?
Seems IF everything was perfectly aligned it might work. (Only inputting
Are "micro" power impulses "smooth"????? Seems a couple of keys would be

Anyone know any historical trivia relating to this???
