Thanks. Now I have one more reason to be thankful that the Ericson owners' site is privately owned and chooses not to accept advertising.

BTW, I am not talking about the conversion of gear-name words to links to stuff-for-sale on this site -- those words remain and just look a bit funny with their little underlines.
Adding text that the author never said, OTOH, is just wrong.
