    The site offsoundings.info was owned and maintained by list member Robert 
    Gainer who passed away last year. He provided space for list members to 
    upload files several years ago. I am copying the files available there to 
    ensure that they are archived. The descriptions below are taken directly from 
    that web page. I've unzipped any zip files which contained only one or two 
    files, and I have omitted links to other web sites. Be aware that some of 
    these files are very old (e.g. from 1990).
