Ahh so your saying that since the poster has Bremerton marked as his user, assuming that he has kept it updated that hes talking about Bremerton and not Seattle, Jefferson Co. Mason county etc...?

I dont see the word Bremerton anywhere other than in your reply. Guess my psychic meter must be turned off.

If you are reading the Radio Reference site - NOT E-MAIL - you will see the author's location at the top right of each message. Yours is Las Vegas, right?
