Hi Hans
 I know the fellow that just won the 1130. He is a neighbor
of mine ( about 2 miles away ). He is one of the few other
people that I know of that has a Nicolet NIC-80.
 He said he'd rather have a 1620 but a 1130 will just have
to do. He has a hanger to put it in. I know he expects to
get it running. The project of getting it across the pond
is going to be interesting to follow. I'll try to get him to
take pictures and post them on his web page of his adventures.
Dwight
