        Thanks for the encouragement. It seems that at one time, one of us did try to
contact TA to no avail. Should we try again?? I'd need to get the contact info
from the gent that tried it the first time, and I'll give it a second

outstanding! i continue to applaud your efforts.

i would think that all we need to proceed is a trail of evidence showing a
"reasonable effort" to receive permission in this area.

this can be a precedent-setting effort for publication of all kinds of
useful historical information that might otherwise be lost forever.

thanks again for blazing the trail!
