    Yeah, but doesn't NY have a history of structural problems? I can
    remember several years back when they got a snowstorm and had many
    problems because standards in building codes are based upon a period of
    time, for example, perhaps 50 years? I would expect that they would
    expect anything that has happened in the past 100 years to possible
    happen in the next 100 years, at least as many building last quite a while.

    NY's a big state. Building codes in NYC are about as current as they
    can get. But you can still build anything you like out in the
    country in some places.

    Works ok in our repeater-soaked environment, today. There's no good
    reason to have a big 2m antenna any more....(c;

    I know they still have genesee. I'm not quite sure on Utica Club though. I
    heard something about it last week, so they still might have it.

    Utica Club would have been put out of business by the lawyers if they
    ran the beer commercials for us kids these days. Their ad on WSYR-
    TV3, the only station we got in Moravia for years, was a little bar
    with no people, only talking beer steins/mugs. The two main
    characters were Schultz, a big German stein and his little buddy
    Dooley, a little Irish mug. Both of them were in love with a little
    fraulien stein, but I don't remember her name. There was a Keystone
    Kop stein in uniform, Officer somebody-or-other, and a German street
    band of instruments that played themselves used to march by the little
    window at the end of the bar.

    Every kid in my area waited for the next Schultz & Dooley episode ad
    from Utica Club. However, none of us became blatant alcoholics at 10
    just because we enjoyed the commercials. My dad was a bartender at
    the Moravia VFW and hoodwinked the beer salesman into getting me a
    Schultz & Dooley stein set....(c; I never found it when I came home
    from the Navy and all my stuff was gone....(snif).

    The goodie twoshoes would simply KILL the company, today, for having
    an ad like that. We loved it.

    I remember Genesee's "Jenny" in her skimpy outfit. Teenage
    fantasies...(c;

    It was "Brewed with Pure Hemlock Lake Water!", the ads said. The ads
    didn't mention the whole city of Rochester drank "Pure Hemlock Lake
    Water" from the city water system, though....(c;

    It was originally on topic, since it had to do with a VZW Cell Tower.
