would be a lot of work to do for free. That, also, would be a most desirable and sensible thing to do, as long as I
don't do it. Having a comprehensive set of test results, all from one location with an assortment of Telos of varying provenance, differing manufacture dates, and disparate engineering change levels including firmware, could answer the question once and forever. But, of course, it may be that someone already knows
and isn't telling.
You have a good point. I should have put a realistic cap on the number of units - perhaps 10 would be reasonable, but I'm not seriously expecting a positive response. I WOULD be willing and happy to do it, though.
This discussion reminds me a bit of the recent reports in the press about the new white iPhone being thicker than the black one, and much of the media jumped on it with reports of catastrophe to case users - how they couldn't fit, etc. After much kveching and distress over this gross screwup by Apple, and Apple insisting it really wasn't any thicker, after a couple of weeks or more Consumers Reports took the step of actually measuring it with a vernier caliper, and, as you probably already know, the white and black iphones are the same thickness. Never Mind!!!
Incredible that much time and energy would be expended without taking the time to check the facts.
Like you, I have a hunch that someone probably really knows the true answer to my question, but that's just speculation on my part, and I'll give them the benefit of doubt. They really SHOULD know the answer, but lets assume that they don't.
In any case, my offer remains, with the upper limit of 10 units. I'm retired, so I have plenty of time for this (assuming my telomeres are still long enough
