    OK. One more time. PLEASE respond to the survey. Even if you are just getting
    started.
    
    Post replies to the list primarily. I will summarize and post the results.
    
    Be aware that most of the better celestial navigation books were written
    before 1980. So still list yours.
    
    Navigation-l subscribers listed 182. The response to the survey has been 10!.
    
    Results will be posted June 13.
