PC: Re: PC passenger decals

I calle Champion (http://www.minot.com/~champ/index.html) , only to find the
last PH-133 were sold last august, and PH-131 long before that.  I guess we
all have to gang up on them (or a custom house) to stimulate demand.  Maybe
the first fundraising project for the not yet existing historical society.
