(To exclude the possibility of personality problems, I have not until now communicated with the main parties direct.)
The book with the above title was published in 1996. It is available on my website, and there is a copy in Trinity College Library, Cambridge.
Since then, the Lynch-Catt paper on the problem was given at the IEE Group S7 Conference on 10 July 1998. This paper was later published in the Conference Proceedings, and is available on my website, (the key diagram, p3 of the book The Catt Anomaly, being enclosed herewith).
Your responsibility in this matter is discussed in the book, which is about to be re-issued.
You are invited to send me your comments for inclusion, unedited, in the new edition of the book. Your comments will also go onto my website.
You may also want to avail yourself of "Riposte", which is explained on my website Home Page. This enables you to have a hyperlink from anywhere on my website, to a website of your choosing, to rebut any assertion made on my website.
You may or may not wish to respond to these specific questions;
2. Are you a Westerner or a Southerner?
3. Should a conference be convened to discuss The Catt Anomaly? (See p55 of my book.) If so, who should organise it, who finance it, and who should be guest speakers? (I note that G De Santillana, in The Crime of Galileo, pub. 1955, writes that the main mistake in handling Galileo [the earth moves] was to approach it administratively, which is your mistake over The Catt Anomaly. ".... if a decision had to be taken, a council was in order. To deal with the question on an administrative level [Note 1] was not only an arbitrary procedure; it was an inexcusable mistake, which is the necessary premise to the graver mistake of the trial sixteen years later...." - De Santillana, p137)
4. Should Ivor Catt have approached the matter differently, and if so, how? How should he approach the matter now?
Best wishes, Ivor Catt

".... Dr. Mink generously took his personal time to provide you with a reply. With respect to the views of Professor Pepper and Dr. McEwan, he stated that "I am in general agreement with their assessment of the "Catt Anomaly"."
We do not believe it to be appropriate to again search out a volunteer to review another volunteer's reply." - RT Wangemann.... 5feb97.
