    No, I didn't get it yet. Sorry if I raised a few heart rates out there.

    This one looks like it's going to be pretty straight forward, short and sweet. Plug it in and go. The manual pretty much takes care of the first look other than the pics of it actually attached and of it running in the field.

    IIRC, Earl was going to take the gut pics?

    Since we have another day or so before it arrives, what else will we want to add to this doc?

    Yes, I will take the internal shots when I get mine.

    I don't want ANYONE opening the AM21.

    I agree that this should not take long to put together. I think it should be along the lines of other DBSTalk.Com first looks put together in the past with the following sections:

    Introduction
    Dimensions, Appearance, and Ports
    From the Outside
    From the Inside
    Setup & Activation
    Observations
    Conclusions

    Each section including whatever pictures are relevant. I took the liberty of starting a Microsoft Word document, which is attached.

    Great start! I was wondering if there was an official dbstalk boilerplate but this should work fine! I'm off this week still so I'll do as much as I can with pics and anything else I need to do.

    Nice start. I also agree it should be simple. I will do what I can also.

    I do have a registered version of NovaPDF, which converts Word documents to PDF files, so we can do all editing in Word, and submit it to Earl for his final approval, then convert it to a PDF file.

    Since odds are I'll be the first to get mine, based on geographic location and the time of day FedEx delivers to my area, I'll take plenty of pics of the unit [Don't worry Earl, no topless pics] and pass them on to whomever is putting the doc together.

    I'm in unincorporated Lake Worth, west of Congress Ave. FedEx hits my place between 8:30am and 9am.

    Yea I know the area. Fed ex is right around the corner from my office which is approx. 1 mile from the speedway so it won't be that early. Earrl, if I had a tracking number I could walk in on the way to the office and get it! :D just kidding Earl!

    I suggest having the document proofread before conversion and posting.
