    On a similar observation of a different object, Kurt suggested to me            
    that I report the flash period as the time between primary flashes but          
    indicate the secondary and tertiary flashes (that occurred early in             
    the pass in-between the primary flashes) in the comments column, e.g.,          
    F'FfF'Ff->F'F' in my case, or F'fF'f in your case, with the reported            
    flash period corresponding to the interval between two F'.                      
    Once the promised comments column extension is implemented :-) we'll            
    have room to note regular secondary/tertiary flash period timings.              
    Apologies if this is a duplication.  I forgot about the DNS problem
    with on the first posting.
