    General broadcast of the article to the list would probably violate
    copyright.  It is my belief as a scholar, I am no lawyer, that sending
    one copy of the article to you is within the fair-use provisions of
    copyright law.  However, as a matter of law, I would be violating
    copyright to have the article faxed to me from my library source and
    then forward it to you.  But I have done that in limited cases, perhaps
    stretching the interpretation of fair use.
    One can get reprints of newer articles from the authors or their
    websites.  With these older articles, it's tough, and the journal
    publishers have taken to trying to charge an arm and a leg for them.
    If one has a research library nearby, it's no problem.  But those of us
    far away from research libraries (100 miles in my case) have to pay
    more or do without.
    In this case, you can buy the entire journal archive that Wolfgang has
    for ?100 from the Royal Institute of Navigation, and help sustain them,
    but I'm not sure you would be interested in very many of the articles.
    In that case, it wouldn't be worth it.
