I have discussed this with Terry. He mentioned that he may or may not be able to do this- if I were able to make it down there we would do different things, measure resulting effects of possible methods at achieving this, etc.
Problem is, now I have no time freedom and my girlfriend whose family lives close enough to simi valley to justify the 6ish hour drive from where I live... Is now an ex!
To anyone in southern California that owns an xi- make yourself known and help develop your damn platform already!
Edit: proposition: If people on this thread pool up enough to buy me a new FMIC, I'll schedule with Terry for over Thanksgiving weekend (I know for sure that I'll be down there then) if he is available to spend time on this then. I'll provide any proof needed that I went, we gave it a full genuine effort, etc. I'd accept any of the following: AMS, ETS, VRSF, etc. not interested in an Ebay FMIC. I'm reasonable
