Dear Mr. Estey,

Thanks for such a prompt response :-)  Sounds like the NetRS may be the way
for us to go, when it is ready. I'm surprised that the R7 doesn't 
support Binex, though,
because its spec sheet says that it does (at the bottom right on the 
first page):


The same is true for the R8. I'll follow up on this issue with the folks 
at Trimble,
in case it's a misprint. Do you know how I might contact Mr. Frohring, 
or might
he respond to an inquiry posted to this list?

Thanks again for your assistance.

  - Charles
