Thanks Kubelmann
Here is a site that has wiring diagrams for those things. :wink:

Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

Great post and web site.
I passed this site along to one of the two folks who complained about the RoMTOC CD after over 1200 CD shared. Although a wiring diagram is not of help if you do not know how to wire.
