      Norm,

      Thank you for responding!   I would be more than happy to provide
      what ever information you require to complete the registration.

      I submitted (or I assume I submitted) my registration with KE7JFH a little over
      2 weeks ago (I didn't write down the exact date).

      If I need to re-submit, I'm fine with that, but don't want to mess anything up
      by reapplying if it is not necessary.

      Jeff
      KF7MMN
