    In case you haven't guessed, I obtained a DVD recorder last week, so I can now transfer my videotape collection to DVD, which in turn fits in the slot on my computer, so I can broadcast the video on YouTube.

    Here are the Type 5 AND Type 6, together at the same time. Volunteers are doing the pedaling, so I can stand by and run the Camcorder:
