    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Question about the price of your heat energy. It will be fixed, or will depend on the country of the customer, and local prices of energy?
    My best regards,
    Jaroslaw Bem

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Jaroslaw Bem:
    It will be defined case by case depending on the situation to share the profit with the Customer.

    Keeping control of the “cat” and its control system is in my way of seeing the only possible way. Not to keep any secrets because it is not difficult for an actor with great resources to imitate them. I am convinced that it is essentially about reducing the risks of someone’s deliberately causing accidents with the new technology, which must then be investigated and investigated while the months go and the operator himself has the opportunity to develop his own products.

    Thank you for your opinion.
    I agree on the point of the security, but I assure you that the IP will be very well defended. Nothing is impossible, but our system will be very close to impossible to be broken.
    Warm Regards,

    Mr Rossi:
    Did I understand well that you are not going to sell the plants, but only the heat?
    Who will say to the customers that your technology works, apart you?

    I think the idea of the control of the ecats through the cloud is genial. It also cuts the throat to all the doubts: if you install at your expenses the plants and the customers have only to pay the heat, you are the undisputable winner in the LENR field. Nobody has even thought to a similar masterpiece.
    Godspeed

    I would like to toot my horn.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Have you considered forming your own wholesale electric utility? You could sell electric power to cities, utility companies, and large industrial users. That way you could better protect your intellectual property. My small town (population 2,500) sells electricity to its citizens, but buys all its power from the grid.

    As you know, there are many small remote villages that use diesel generated electricity produced with diesel oil barged in at great expense.http://www.netl.doe.gov/technologies/oil-gas/AEO/RemotePower/RemotePower.html

    Some small island states could use your service without any bureaucratic interference.

    Sincerely,
    Iggy Dalrymple

    Back then I suggested retaining ownership of your reactors and selling electricity.
    Well, selling heat is the next best thing.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Of importance to many followers of your work is the desire to have independent third party verification of the power output and COP of your E-Cat system. It is understood that you want to keep critical details of how the E-Cat operates secret. For this reason you are retaining ownership and the giving the customer no access to details of how the system works. When you install an E-Cat QX system in a customer’s facility surely the customer will be able to measure the integrated energy fed to the installed E-Cat as well as the energy outputted by the E-Cat system. In all likelihood the electrical power fed to the E-Cat would be monitored with a standard Kilowatt hour meter, and the heat produced by the E-Cat would be monitored by flow and temperature gauges installed where the hot water or steam passes from your E-Cat to his facility. The primary propose of these measurements would be to verify that the E-Cat is complying with your contract to provide net energy in the form of heat, but this data over time can potentially provide multiple third party verification of the E-Cat’s performance as a “Black box”. Hopefully such “black box” data would not give away any E-Cat secrets that would help a competitor but would increase interest in and acceptance of your E-Cat system.
    Such verification will be of interest to your followers only if both you and your customers allow it to be released into the public domain. Further that the customers as independent agents publicly represent the data to be accurate. I believe (hope) that some of your customers will agree to provide such third party verification if you don’t make keeping it confidential a contractual requirement.

    Questions:

    1. Do you want your E-Cat system to be widely accepted as a viable energy producing system in the 2018 to 2019 time frame?

    2. Assuming that some of your early customers are willing to do so; will you allow them to publically disclose electrical input and thermal output data as integrated energy values over periods of time like days, weeks, or months?

    I am a retired systems engineer who worked for years on advanced technology associated with the manufacture of integrated circuits. My interest in your work is driven by the desire to see some form of safe cheap nuclear energy become a reality in my life time.

    Thank You,

    Dan Galburt

  12. Andrea Rossi

    Dan Galburt:
    I agree with you: the wallet of our Customers will be the best and most convincing witness of the economical advantages, if any, of our technology and such independent witness will not affect the defense of our IP.
    I am convinced that some Customer of ours will not have difficulties about giving testimony regarding our efficiency in the delivery of thermal energy and its competitiveness.
    It is obvious that in the context of this commercial strategy it is naif to ask us other demonstrations, for the same reason for which Exxon does not need to give any demo about the fact that their gas works and has the price their customers pay for each gallon.
    Thank you for your comment,

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The idea of a centralized control system to protect the IP is surely a good idea, but when you will have millions of Ecats in the world it will be difficult to menage.

    Dear Andrea,

    since i was graduated, it exists the smart card technology. A small chip that is made in shape of a credit card. They costs about 10$ or less and have a full fledged CPU with RAM and ROM. More important they have the technology to keep secret what is inside (think of credit cards or bancomat). Have you thought to use this technology in the future, instead of internet? I mean use a smart card with your custom software that drive an Ecat with a proper slot. The software is not downloadable and you can put countermeasures to not let the user put oscilloscopes or testers to steal the secrets (this problem is present also now with on line tele control)…

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    Thank you for your suggestion, as smart as the card.
    Warm Regards,

  26. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Assuming that someone steals the elements of a plant, he will never discover the software and control signals that make it competitive.
    This is, I believe, the secret to preventing reverse engineering. Is it correct?

  31. Former Sceptic

    It is impressive the work you did from the demo of Stockholm of November 2017, in total 5 months, during which has been achieved what follows:
    1- solution of all the problems of overheating
    2- realization of a prototype ready for industrialization
    3- power of the module raised from 20 W to 1 kW with the same dimensions
    4- R&D of the SK
    5- project of the centralized control of the plants of the customers from your site
    All this in a normal concern would need years to be realized.
    Monstruous.

  37. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    When the domestic products are on the market, do you expect they will run on the same principle: with control systems at Leonardo HQ, connected to the E-cat via the internet?

    Many thanks,

  46. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    We will use dedicated servers that will grant reliability, but still internet blackouts are possible. Backup is necessary. Our Clients will maintain in by-pass the system they already have to dispose of it as a backup, just in case.

  47. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

    I am delighted to see that your project is progressing at a steady pace and I hope that the prediction of my crystal ball for commissioning a plant before the end of this year will be a reality.
    Could you tell us if the E-Cat 1MW needs a generator to ensure its safety in case of power failure on the power grid because it must certainly in this case continue to evacuate heat?
    All my encouragement and support for your wonderful work
    Best regards

    Raffaele

  48. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    Yes, a backup is necessary. The former heat fluid generator can be such backup.
    Thank you for your kind crystal ball.

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote: ” We deliver and install plants that remain of our property, while we sell the heat they produce.”

  51. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Your remark to supply heat only is quite interesting. I have some additional questions:
    1. Does it mean that you do not ask for an initial investment of your customer to supply the Ecat QX?
    2. Or perhaps a relatively low initial investment that allows for the requirements of your customer?
    3. If I would be able to gain the interest of 50 of my neighbors, would you be willing to supply a 1 MW unit that can supply 99 degrees C water to me and me neighbors for heating our houses during the winter and for hot water supply for showers and baths? I assume the unit would be located in a small industrial building near to us.
    4. What electrical power connection is required? (1/3 phase?, nominal voltage?, maximum current?). Assume the water pumps to distribute the water to the houses is not part of your delivery.
    Thank you, kind regards, Gerard

  52. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- yes
    2- no
    3- no, we can only install out plants in industries
    4- 3 phase, voltage depends on the locations grid
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  53. JPR

    Your strategy aimed to sell only heat, not plants and to direct the plants through a cloud is genial. This way nobody has access to the technology. I imagine your remote control destroys someway the secret parts if somebody tries to violate the closed box. Am I correct?

  54. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    As a matter of fact all the industrial secrets related to the control system will not be in the plant, but in our control headquarter; what will be found in the plant is already described in the patent, that for obvious reasons has been published in all the 57 Countries that have granted it. It will be like to steal the secrets of AT&T looking at the telephone set on the table of the sitting room. This will make us waste no time with fake-clients-real-spies, because at this point we will be contacted only by Customers that really want only to save money, when buying energy, not giving a damn about how it can happen. It should also speed up our penetration, because the Client has no risks, makes no investments, if he gets energy with a profit he pays, otherwise he does not pay and we get back the plant. In case of malfunction the Client can use his traditional system as a back up and all the risks are upon us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    It’s fascinating to see this developing day by day after all these years . I never become bored of reading here each day I’m gripped as the last. Amazing when you think about it.

    About the approaching disruption of the plants to industry. I suppose the geographical distribution could be quite large.

    It’s not my field but I’m curious and was wondering how you will cover the maintenance of these units from a boiler and heat exchanger point of view?

    I appreciate that normal operation can be monitored and controlled remotely and does not require onsite support.

    Would Maintenance work of the boilers and heat exchangers however normally be required routinely, periodically or rarely during the operation.?

    Would you need to have someone on call to ensure continuity of service in case of shut downer necessary repairs for any reason?

    Will you be employing or contracting people locally for this maintenance or providing it from a central source. ( I.e your own company site?)

    I suppose in these initial instances the industries will already have established backups on site for heating during periods of maintenance so maybe the questions are a bit academic at this early stage.

    Looking forward to these next steps in your business plan.

    Best Regards
    Stephen

  58. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Thank you to be so kind with this blog.
    The maintenance will be distinguished in two categories: what is of pertinence of us and what of the Customer.
    The part up to us will be made by our operators.
    Where we will have plants, we will have operators for the maintenance.
    The specific maintenance program will depend on the specific situations.
    As you correctly say, the Clients will maintain a back up to have their production unaffected in case of shut-down, whatever its reason.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Yes, we are open now to begin to examine requests for 1 thermal MW plants, but only from industries that use directly the heat for their production process in their factories. For this utilization we have the necessary certifications and our industrialization is scheduled to start at the end of the year. Therefore the answer is YES, but the Customers must be aware of the fact that the delivery terms could be modified. The contracts will take in consideration this fact.

    In the video of the demonstration of the Ecat QX on November 24th in Stockholm I noticed that on the trade mark with the cat and the sun is written “Made in the USA”.
    So the Ecats are made in the USA?
    By the way: I was very sceptic about your effect, but I changed idea after this demonstration. Now I really hope you will succeed.

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure you and your team (i.e. Gullström) have been further developing the theory bebehind the Rossi effect.
    1. Is any progress made?
    2. Are you able to explain the released energy in comparison to the measured/analysed nuclear reaction products?
    3. Is the theory in development in unison with the energy balance and reaction products?
    4. Are you able to tell us what nuclear reaction in the Ecat QX produces most of the output energy?
    I whish you great success with the SK module in the next few weeks.
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  117. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,

    Very interesting comments about the SK recently.

    In my opinion, for most people on the outside, I think any high COP reliable E-Cat product that you can put on the market is going to be considered a masterpiece. The SK may be better than the QX, but I think the QX, as you have described it, will be just fine to begin with.

    You can always start with a limited run of QXs for the product launch, while you perfect the SK.

    Hoping for a successful 2018 launch!

    Best wishes,

    When you say “very difficult” is that because you are committed to a 2018 product launch, and it would be harder to have the SK ready in 2018, as compared to the QX?

    Dear Andrea,

    Wikipedia: So a number of years ago, a person became aware of a wiki about himself. There were a number of errors in the wiki. I don’t remember the exact particulars, but was things like place and date of birth, number of children and their names etc…

    So this person sets about correcting these errors about himself.
    After he was done, within minutes, all the data reverted to the original version. The reason was he wasn’t considered a credible source by the person in charge of managing his wiki page. This even after proving he was said person.

    Perhaps when you are selling millions of E-cats a day, you could set up a wiki called Rossiwiki that points out all these discrepancies. Then every time people from Wikipedia make changes to it, it will revert back to the original because obviously, they are not always a credible source.

    You have confirmed that production machinery is already in place. Is that in the USA or Sweden or both?

    What will be the smallest sized industrial e-Cat QX unit, in KW output thermal, rolling out of the production line?

    Will you have a sales depot in Italy once production commences?

  161. Andrea Rossi

    Albert Ellul:
    I have not said that the production lines are already in place. I said they we have started to build them.
    We started in the USA, but we are looking for Sweden as well.
    The fundamental module has a power of 1 kW.
    We will have depots everywhere they will be necessary.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    If possible, could you confirm or not confirm my interpretation of the current situation.

    1) You are currently working in one location in the USA?
    2) You have started to build a production system?
    3) The production system is designed to build 1 kW E-Cat QX Modules?
    4) You have not yet started producing the modules in the system (too early)?
    5) The production system you are building will have the capacity to build 100,000 1 kW Modules over the course of one year?
    6) If the production system works well, and if sales are strong enough, you can duplicate the production system to increase capacity?

    Thank you and best wishes,

  164. Buck

    Good Day Andrea:

    I have to say that I see your sense of excitement as your goal approaches. Also, I have a question about your expansion plans and the many ways of preparing for the rapid increase in demand.

    Using some of the ideas in TQM as well as Nash Equilibriums, are you setting up two production lines with their respectively staffed teams? For example, two at the USA plant, or maybe better yet, one at the USA plant and the 2nd at the plant in Sweden. This done with the goal that each is to share their tricks to building each QX and QX 1kW module right and to be the objective view when the other team hits a snag? Effectively establishing an environment where each team recognizes that the goal, their success, is defined by their individual choices as well as their collective choices.

    I raise this question because of optimism. I believe your greatest challenge won’t be the sale of the first 100,000 1kW modules but rather the demand that each production facility will face in solving the problems created by rapidly expanding production through adding lines at their location (USA & Sweden) as well as the addition of lines at entirely new locations with entirely new untrained or partially trained teams.

    As always, my best to your and your team,

    Buck

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The page about you on Wikipedia contains false information on you, falsificates the events of your past described on http://www.ingandrearossi.com, forgets to explain that you have been acquitted from the accusations, etc. I tried to make corrections and updates, as in theory everybody could be allowed to do along what Wikipedia says of itself, but after few seconds all the corrections and updates are cancelled and the false version returns. We made an investigation and discovered that your page on Wikipedia has been made by a competitor of yours who happens to be an editor of Wikipedia and there is no way to make any correction, because your competitor has the full control of the page on Wikipedia about you, made by him years ago since and now untouchable. It seems that he controls the page 24/7 and anytime anybody tries a correction, he immediately cancels it. Useless to try to contact Wikipedia, because it is a sort of a kafkian castle.
    Are you aware of all this? How do you think you can correct this situation?
    Godspeed,
    Kirk

  183. Andrea Rossi

    Kirk Sperberg:
    What you say is true, we too tried to reinstate truth on Wikipedia.
    It turns out to be a blackmail: to correct we should have to spend huge sums with specialized companies, that would have to stay 24/7 engaged to correct the false information, that eventually would be again reinstated, and so on forever.
    The way out could be to sue Wikipedia, which would cost millions.
    We decided a totally different strategy: wait for the product in the market and then use irony comparing falsity with real facts and make the king naked.
    A big laugh is more effective than a petulant discussion with guys in bad faith. Most of all, it takes less time and money.

  184. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted the word “Modulated” in regards to the operation of the eCat modules but then also alluded to turning them on and off for control of the modules.

    Modulate means “to alter the amplitude or frequency of (an electromagnetic wave or other oscillation) in accordance with the variations of a second signal, typically one of a lower frequency.”

    1. Are you using modulation to mean a high rate of turning on and off of the eCat modules as a means of control?
    2. Or does the control of the module involve full power on for some long period of time and then off for some long period of time?
    3. Or does modulation mean partially turning on or off a module to achieve the desired output?

    Please clarify.

    It is known that users do the most amazing things.
    Therefore, for a desired connection programmed by the user with a foreign power supply, the LENR device could be connected in such a way as to be always active and no longer controlled by its electronics and by its normal security systems
    What would happen in this case?
    a-Turn off or lock without any damage
    b-It turns off after an irreversible damage or after having melted but without any possible external damage
    c-May explode or cause damage external to the device

    They have hacked the site http://www.ingandrearossi.com : shame on them, honor on you. Your website is fundamental to give evidence of your innocence. Clearly there is out some son of a b…. that wants not allow you to give evidence of the real events that happened. I hope your specialist is able to resolve, but I am afraid that powerful guys are working to stop the industrialization of the Ecat with any mean. Be careful.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The hacking operation against your website http://www.ingandrearossi.com is one of the infinite actions that a network of paid operators is organizing, working full time, to assassinate your character. They work full time, are professionals of the internet and are many. Your website http://www.andrearossi.com is very important, because it explains the events of your past, caused by a general that finished in prison for corruption. I am not surprised it has been hacked.
    I wonder how you can defend yourself against this well organized slendering organization, clearly financed from some very powerful system.
    The positive side of all this is that if they are working so much and spending so much full time to fight you, it means they are very afraid of what you are working on, for one reason or the other. How do you think to defend yourself and your team?
    God bless you and your work,
    Jorge

    Jorge:
    All the actions of our adverse People will be pulverized in the time of a blink with a product. I am focused exclusively on it now.
    About the website that has been hacked, our IT Guy is working hard and surely will resolve the problem, as he always did in past and surely will heve to do in future, but I am not worried: somebody is trying to stop the Niagara Falls with a team of powerful plumbers.

    Hello A. Rossi

    I am not at all surprised that you are attacked, this has already been done in the past and you have been a lot of trouble. Many powerful companies around the world have an interest in having your E-Cat never see the light of day.
    Stay on the alert because your opponents are far from being children of heart and their methods can be expeditious.
    All my support for your work.
    Your supporter

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    The website http://www.ingandrearossi.com is down: what happened?
    Leonardo

  218. Andrea Rossi

    Leonardo Davinci:
    Yes, it has been hacked, the usual imbeciles think that with chatters, hackings and false information, also about my past, they can stop the history. I can’t wait to introduce the industrialized Ecat in the market to turn into dust all the mountain of false information and hacking our enemies have set up, with substantial expenses, as I knew. They do not understand, and cannot understand, that the more we are attacked, the more we get strong to reach our target. Once we will introduce our product in the market all the hell they raised against us in years will be pulverized in matter of days, if not hours. They say the Ecat does not exist, we put it in the market, they are zombified. Period. Our IT guy is working to put again in the internet the website http://www.ingandrearossi.com
    It will not be easy, because they made a mess,so to fix the issue it will take perhaps several days.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    On March 26, you said you were 40 per cent of the way towards:

    a) perfection of the module to industrialize
    b) industrialization system

    What is your estimation of the same today (May 4th)?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  220. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    a) 50% and we are in a very crucial period of tests of the version we deem ready for industrialization. We are working and spending hard
    b) 50%, having resolved many problems
    The work is brutal, but we gotta get the f…… top of the mountain. I still hope to introduce the industrialized Ecat QX by the end of the year.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    You said you have an Ecat currently undergoing the domestic certification process. Is the device being reviewed a complete appliance (for instance a hot water heater) or is it a sub-portion of what would later become an eventual appliance (such as a heater assembly)?

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  224. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    Is is just the heater assembly, for the other parts we will use certified components.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    One question please. Do you think within this year you will be able to produce with the Robots your products ?

    Warm Regards.

    Dear Andrea,

    When switching the Ecat QX off and on during normal operation, would long periods in the off position degrade the life of the system?

    Dear Andrea:
    After the convincing demo made in Stockholm in front of the highest echelons of the scientific world, still your effect is controversial. Why so?

  229. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    It is called “Confirmation Bias”: our brains usually select information consistent with what we already believe and refuse information in contrast. It can be modified only with strong experience. In our case, products in the market.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is there in the charge of the Ecat QX any expensive or rare component?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I asked:
    Over what range of thermal output can you effect control? (e.g. 25% to 110%)? You answered “Any”
    and
    What is the maximum percentage of nominal output that a module may be continuously operated at (e.g., 150%), assuming operating temperature range was maintained?
    I believe your answer may be interpreted as 100%.

    Relative to the first answer of “Any”, I make an analogy to a linear power supply. Usually, the device is limited to some percentage of nominal power and under different conditions. Under constant load, the power supply may be controlled to say from 10% of nominal to 100% of nominal output. Under short term or transient conditions, one might be to get 125% of nominal output. The ranges also vary based on the operating environment.

    So can your modules really handle “Any” commanded level of thermal output? Can it be commanded to output 1% +/- 0/1% of nominal? Can it be commanded to output 99.5% of nominal? Can it be commanded to output 125% of nominal for “short periods of time”? Please clarify.

    The second question was attempting to understand the nominal output design of the module. Can you really run the module at 100% of its capability continuously, or, is there some other maximum value so that, for design and safety reasons, you define the maximum thermal output as some lower percentage? For example, the module can provide 1.3kW of thermal output but you specify and control it so that the module is only allowed to run at 1.0kW thermal output level of less?

  233. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I confirm my answers.
    We cannot modulate the power of single modules, we can only switch them on/off.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  234. Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea:
    1- Is still under certification process the domestic Ecat?
    2- If yes, do you have any feedback?
    3- How much will be its price/kW?
    Thank you,
    Chuck Davis

  235. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    1- yes
    2- not yet
    3- premature
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  236. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted that you can control the thermal output of a single eCat reactor module…

    1. Over what range of thermal output can you effect control? (e.g. 25% to 110%)?
    2. If you turn off an individual module, i.e., 0% thermal output, while adjacent modules are running, how long does it take for the turned off module to become fully functioning after being commanded to turn on, (seconds, milliseconds, minutes)?
    3. What is the maximum percentage of nominal output that a module may be continuously operated at (e.g., 150%), assuming operating temperature range was maintained?

  237. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- any
    2- seconds plus the obvious transitory of the T curve
    3- depends on the model. If it is a 1 kW module, it will be 1 kWh/h
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    Is the control system of the Ecat QX able to modulate the power of any single module, or it can only switch on and off single modules separately?

  240. Andrea Rossi

    Donny:
    It cannot modulate the single module. It can only switch on/off any module.
    Warm Regards,

    Frank Acland asked you if the power of a plant can be modulated, you answered that it is possible by means of the control system: so the control system can modulate the single modules?

    The control system can turn on and off the single modules. You are right, my answer was not complete.

    Dear Andrea,

    1) Will it be possible to operate an E-Cat plant at a fraction of its maximum rating, for example operate a 1 MW plant at 500 kW?
    2) If yes, would you do so by turning off some of the modules during the plant’s operation?
    3) Will it be possible to add modules to an existing plant after it is installed, in order to increase power, for example make a 1 MW plant into a 1.5 MW plant?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  247. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes
    2- you do it through the control system
    3- yes

    Dear Andrea,
    Your focus on presenting a heat producing industrialized Ecat QX within this year is ambitious and the best choice you now may take. I understand you also are exploring future steps to produce electricity.
    The Supercritical CO2 turbines seems now to be closer to commercialization.
    These will perform the highest thermal efficiency and power density of thermal-to-electric generators. The possibilities of a high turbine inlet-temperature from the Ecat makes possibilities for up to 50% higher thermal efficiency than in a steam Rankine generator.
    Do you study the possibilities to combine Ecat and S-CO2 turbines?
    Best Regards,
    Svein Henrik.

  251. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    I am really curious to follow the developments in the sector of the Supercritical CO2 and surely interested in its industrial applications.
    Thank you for the information,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
