Larry --

If my memory serves me correctly, B-B was recently bought up

It may not be a bad idea to find a substitute for the 7807. 
Sixteen bit A/Ds are becomming mainstream today so finding
one should not be real hard.

I suggest Maxim, Linear Technologies, Analogue Devices and
National Semiconductor as starteres.

	Please email me if I can offer additional information.

	Sincerely, Bob Smith
