Contact Steve Chaffee at <>. He heads the 
MGA 1800 Interest Group for NAMGAR and can answer all your questions 
about this subject. Not sure if you are member of NAMGAR, (if not, 
please consider joining and registering your MGA) but Steve had an 
article on this subject in NAMGAR's bimonthly magazine MGA! several 
issues ago. There have been other articles on various aspects of 
converting in past issues. Copies of all these articles are available 
for a nominal fee to NAMGAR members. Future issues of MGA! Will 
continue to have "conversion" articles.
