Tape enthusiasts:

Please note that the time of the AdHoc tape meeting has been moved up for
the meeting on July 13 in Colorado Springs! It was originally scheduled to
start in the afternoon. It is now scheduled to start at 9AM. I have changed
my flight plans and was able to get a room Monday night at the Double Tree
in order to arrive on time. 

An apolgy to Ed Gardner for misspelling his name and to Paul Suhler for
failing to note his concern about the 12 Volt current capability of the
connector proposal in the minutes.
