    You certainly do, Sandy. Welcome aboard!
    
    Nav-l excludes radionavigation techniques such as GPS and Loran, so the
    emphasis is on celestial nav., but seems to be happy to accept on-board
    electronics such as calculators and computers. It's a broad church, dealing
    with sea, air, and land navigation- even that of a camel-train!
    
    Nav-l is going through a subdued phase at present. Perhaps everyone is on
    holiday. The activity comes in flurries depending on the interest in a topic.
    
    By the way, there's another list, nothing to do with Nav-l, specifically
    dealing with sextants. Quite a few belong to both. It's less technical than
    Nav-l and less argumentative, dealing more with questions of authenticity
    and value, for collectors of sextants. Depends on one's interests. To each
    his own. Details on request.
    
    George.
