Working on it, got my Bay in yesterday. Will take the electrical people a
few days to get a 240 Volt 20 AMP connection to it.

Bay is doing some vary interesting stuff, They clam to have the 7500 and
GRF beat hands down. We just got our new lab up with 7500 RSP4 VIP2, GRF
400, GRF 1600, and Bay. It will be vary interesting to see who wins. I
have my money on the GRF, but we shall see.
