The Natural Air air purifier is not a filter, it is an air regenerator.

There is no filter to change or replace.

It does have a fan, but the fan's purpose is not to bring pollutants and odors into the machine, but to send negative ions and optional ozone out to destroy pollutants and odors at their source.

 

  • On a low setting, the Natural Air can safely be used eliminating unwanted odors in an area while people and animals are present.
     
  • On high, the Natural Air can even be used for disinfecting and deodorizing an area or a car with ozone while people and animals are gone.
     
  • Does NOT produce positive ions.
     
  • Approximately 1 million negative ions per CC at one foot, dispersed with the quiet, adjustable fan.
     
  • Adjustable from Zero up to 360 mg/hr ozone.
     
  • Made in USA

 

Includes Remote Control with batteries and

Frequently Asked Questions about the Natural Air

Q. "Since the Natural Air doesn't have a filter to collect pollutants, where does the stuff go that is cleaned out of the air?"


A. Good question. The simple answer is that the odors and gasses are simply oxidized and turned into molecules of carbon dioxide and water vapor (they disappear); and the larger air-borne dust, dander and pollen settle to the floor where they can be vacuumed or mopped up in normal house cleaning.

These ions are electrically charged particles generated in nature by natural forces, like the sun and earth's radiation, water spray and lightning. They are totally harmless to humans. Normal ion levels are from 1,000 to 4,000 ions per cubic centimeter in fresh country air, with a ratio of five positive to four negative. The typical office, however, many contain as few as 20 negative and 35 positive ions per cubic centimeter.

Ions are short-lived and need constant replenishing. That's part of what the the Natural Air Regenerator accomplishes. The balance of negative to positive ions has an effect on our sense of well-being. For example, doctors in Israel have reported that hot, dry "witch's winds", high in positive ions stimulate complaints of discomfort. Little wonder that most people feel their best when near waterfalls and beaches or in the mountains where negative ion counts are much higher.

1. What is effective range of a Natural Air?
Up to 3,000 sq. ft. depending on air flow (an operating paddle fan, for example, will assist in moving ions and ozone throughout area). The Natural Air's air regeneration process and fan can be adjusted from low to high, depending on the size of the room and the strength of offending pollution.

Return to top

2. Where is the best location for a Natural Air within the home?
In a central location, six feet (or more) off the floor; ideally close to a cold-air return of the home's HVAC (heating, ventilation, air cooling) system, or close to the source of odors such as mold or mildew.

Return to top

3. How long does it take to renew the air within the maximum effective range?
Based on environment and movement of air, within minutes to a few hours.

Return to top

4. Should I run my Natural Air unit all the time or just when we're in the room?
For best results, cleanest and freshest air, run the machine constantly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The machine is designed for constant use and only requires easy periodic cleaning for maintenance.

Return to top

5. Should I run my Natural Air when the doors and windows are open?
Yes, under normal temperate conditions. the Natural Air will remove air pollutants such as garden and lawn sprays and pollen that may be carried indoors by the breeze. The device is less effective, however, in high-humidity, non-air conditioned environments.

Return to top

6. In a 3000 sq. ft. house, how many units are recommended?
Placement of units is determined by individual needs and conditions. Are there pets in the home, high pollen count in the area? How many heating/ cooling zones? Refer to #2 above: one unit may be sufficient if placed in the ideal location close to the cold-air return of the HVAC system. (HVAC: heating, ventilation and air cooling)

Return to top

7. With the ideal number of units, how long to purify the air in a (3000 sq ft) house?
See #3 above.

Return to top

8. What is the ideal location within a room?
See #2 above.

Return to top

9. Are there environments where the units would not be effective?
The units do not operate as effectively in a high-temperature/high humidity environment such as non air conditioned spaces such as attics or garages.

Return to top

10. How does the Natural Air clean or purify the air?
The short answer: by replicating Mother Nature's Natural Air cleaning and freshening qualities.

Part of this process generates negative ions, which attract air pollutants such as dust mite particles, skin flakes, dust and smoke. Another part of the Natural Air process releases "activated" oxygen which reduces odors from germs, mold and mildew.

Return to top

11. What kind of filter does Natural Air use?
The Natural Air is an air regenerator, not a filter. There's no filter to change or replace. The Natural Air does have screens which are designed to simply stop large particulates (hair, dust-bunnies, etc) from clogging the works. These filters need to be cleaned only when they become visibly "clogged." Simply brush off the accumulated matter.

Return to top

12. Does the Natural Air have a fan?
Yes. The fan's purpose is not to bring pollutants and odors into the machine, but to send Mother Nature's air regenerating agents out to reduce pollutants and odors at their source.

Return to top

13. Because Natural Air doesn't have a filter to collect pollutants, where does the stuff go that it cleans out of the air?
Many odors and gasses are simply oxydized and turned into molecules of carbon dioxide and water vapor. They virtually disappear!

Larger air-borne dust, dander and pollen, settle to the floor, where they can be vacuumed or mopped up in normal house cleaning.

Return to top

14. What are ions?
Ions are electrically charged particles generated by natural radiation from the earth and sun, water spray and lightning. They are totally harmless to humans.

Normal ion levels are from 1,000 to 4,000 ions per cubic centimeter in fresh country air, with a ratio of 5 positive to 4 negative. The typical office, however, may contain as few as 20 negative and 35 positive ions per cubic centimeter.

Negative ion counts rise much higher in the mountains, some desert areas, near waterfalls and ocean beaches.

Ions are short-lived and need constant replenishing. The balance of negative to positive ions has an effect of our sense of well-being. For example, doctors in Israel report that hot, dry "Witches Winds" high in positive ions stimulate complaints of discomfort. On the other hand is the legendary sense of invigoration and good spirits people enjoy in a balanced, negative ion-charged atmosphere found in the mountains and by the sea-shore.

Return to top

15. Is it safe to use the machine in a baby's room?
The Natural Air regenerates clean, "fresh air" as found in the purest natural environments. Do not exceed a purifier setting higher than the square feet or square meters of the room.

Return to top

16. Will the Natural Air get rid of the smell of cigarette and cigar smoke?
Yes Our filterless,air regeneration technology not only reduces the visible smoke but the odor as well.

Return to top

17. Will the Natural Air get rid of the gasses from new carpet?
Yes. Cooking odors? Yes. That musty smell of mildew? Yes. The key quick removal of offensive odors is good air flow -- movement of the air by a paddle fan or similar -- over the source of the odors.

Return to top

18. Will the Natural Air get rid of the smell of fresh paint?
Yes. Make sure you have good ventilation while you paint, then place the Natural Air about six feet off the floor near the cold-air return of your air conditioning system and the new paint odor will be removed in far less time.

Return to top

19. Will the Natural Air get rid of pet dander?
Yes. The Natural Air regenerates the cleansing agents of Mother Nature to dramatically reduce the amount of particles such as pet dander suspended in the air.

Actually, most people are not bothered by cat dander itself, but by the enzymes contained in the aerosolized saliva produced by cats grooming themselves. The enzyme attaches itself to the dander which, when inhaled, irritates the lungs. Natural Air process removes dander from the "breathing zone."

Note: The "sparklies" you see in a beam of sunlight streaming through the window are not just dust and pet dander, but also particles of skin that all humans constantly shed. Just as it does with pet dander and smoke, the Natural Air's process dramatically reduces the amount of this suspended pollution.

Return to top

20. Will my the Natural Air get rid of sawdust in a work shop?
The majority of sawdust is made up of large particles which are best removed by a vacuum or air filter. The Natural Air is not a filter. It's regeneration process will, however, get rid of the odors produced by woodworking, painting, etc.

Return to top

21. Will the Natural Air get rid of the mold on bathroom tile?
Yes. The regeneration process attacks the mold and turns it into a white powder that can simply be wiped away. Place the Natural Air device in the problem room, turn it on high and close the door.

Return to top

22. Is the Natural Air effective against asbestos?
The device will not destroy asbestos.

Return to top

23. Is the Natural Air effective against radon?
No.

Return to top

24. Is the Natural Air effective against airborne pollen and other allergens?
In an air conditioned environment, the Natural Air's regeneration process will reduce the amounts of airborne allergens brought in from the outside. As effective as the regeneration process is, however, it cannot keep up with the challenge of an area totally open to outside air during "pollen season". Close the windows and the Natural Air will be able to catch up with the pollen load.

Return to top

25. Can the Natural Air help my asthma?
The Natural Air is not a medical device. Regenerating the air to Mother Nature's standards may, however, reduce asthma symptoms in some cases.

Return to top

26. Will a the Natural Air unit in a day care center reduce the incidence of colds and flu among the children and staff?
Airborne materials, such as those emitted by a sneeze, ride on particulates in the air. Natural Air reduces the amount of particulates in the air. Natural Air regeneration process helps reduce airborne contaminates.

Return to top

27. Is the Natural Air safe to use in an elderly person's room?
Yes. The Natural Air simply regenerates the natural elements of fresh, outside air. Natural Air's ability to cleanse the air of odors will also keep the room smelling fresher.

Return to top

28. Will the Natural Air remove and keep mold out of our basement?
Mold grows best in damp and dark environments typical of many below-ground basement rooms. The key to eliminating mold is eliminate the moisture. This may require the application of some form of vapor or water barrier to the below-ground surfaces and/or the use of a de-humidifier. A Natural Air unit will help in mold control and it's accompanying musty mildew odor. See Section 4

"Information Resources".

Return to top

29. Should I move the Natural Air unit into my child's bedroom when he/she has a cold or flu?
Couldn't hurt. For generations, physicians have recommended "taking the air" -- breathing fresh outdoor air and in the sun as a assist toward good health. The Natural Air simply regenerates the cleansing elements of Mother Nature.

Return to top

30. Since the Natural Air doesn't use a filter that would show me what it has removed from the air, how do I know its working?
First, smell the difference in the room where the Natural Air is placed. Second, notice how quickly offensive odors and smoke (as from cigarettes or the fireplace) disappear. Third, check the next time the sun sends a beam of light through the window. You'll see fewer "floaties," especially the sparkly kind of sluffed off skin. Finally, notice how much better you and your family feel; spirits and energy levels a little higher.

Return to top

31. Does the Natural Air meet FDA standards as a "medical device?"
The Natural Air is NOT a medical device and makes no health claims.

Return to top

32. I have asthma/allergies. Will Medicare pay for a Natural Air unit?
Again, the Natural Air is not a medical device. However, if your doctor writes a prescription for an "air cleaner" or similar description, Medicare may (and we stress the word "may") approve the expense.

Return to top

33. How is the Natural Air better than other air filters?
The Natural Air is not an air filter, it is an air regenerator and does not use filters in its freshening, cleansing process. Filters strain particulates out of the air. The effectivness of a filter depends on its ability to stop particulates of certain sizes, the smaller the better. Pollen, for example,is from 10-100 microns in size, animal dander from .3 to 10 microns; lung damaging dust from .5-5 microns in size. Cigarette smoke, for example, is .01-1 microns in size and only the finest filters can remove it from passing air.* Filters trap particulates in their fibers or screens. As the filter becomes loaded with trapped particulates, more and more fan power is required to move the air, and less and less air moves through it. Filters must be replaced or cleaned to maintain efficiency. The Natural Air regenerates the natural qualities of Mother Nature's best air. It does not filter it. It purifies by sending its Natural Air-freshening agents out into the room and home.

* 1 micron = 1/25,400th of an inch, far less than the point of a straight pin.

34. Do I need replacement ozone plates or ion needles for the Natural Air ?
The ion emitter needlepoint and the two ozone screens (plates) are long-lasting. The screens use superior materials. NO GLASS is used. If the ozone output should ever become insufficient, new ozone screens are available for only $29.95 each.

Getting the Most From Your Natural Air™ Regenerator

The Natural Air™ can do far more than deliver mountain fresh air and remove dust, smoke, odors from cooking, mold and chemicals, etc. It's a highly versatile and useful tool to cleanse your whole house!

Freshen up your whole-house air conditioning system.

Put your Natural Air™ unit as close as possible to the main Cold-Air Return of your system. (The main duct where air is drawn from the house into the AC system for heating and cooling). Set the Natural Air's™ "Purify" on "High" and the fan on "Low." Then turn on your AC system fan to run continuously ("Fan ON"). Let it run for at least six hours and up to 12 hours. Natural Air™ can reduce skin dander, pollen, even odor molecules trapped within the air ducts. It's like having the ducts cleaned, only easier (and less expensive!)

Refresh your beds.

Put the Natural Air™ at the foot end of the bed. Make a "tent" over it with the top sheet. (Put the pillows on each side to help support the tent.) Make sure the back of your Natural Air™ unit is open to the outside air so it can draw in and blow regenerated air into the tent. Set both "Purify" and the fan on "High" and let it run for at least two hours. The Natural Air™ unit's ozone will clean the bedding. There's nothing better than a night's sleep in a freshened-up bed!

Clean the kid's room and confined areas.

The Natural Air™ regeneration process reduces germs on surfaces in the following manner-- Place the Natural Air™ in an elevated position facing the area to be cleaned. Set both "Purifier" and the fan on "High" and let it run for up to two hours. During this period, leave the room unoccupied as the ozone level may be irritating to some people, especially children and the elderly.

Clean the bathrooms.

Place the Natural Air™ in an elevated position. Open cabinet doors, shower doors, lid on toilet. Face the Natural Air™ toward any problem areas such as mold on tile. Set both "Purifier" and the fan on "High," close the door, leave the room unoccupied, and let it run for at least two hours.

Freshen your clothes closets.

Elevate the Natural Air™ on a stool facing the open closet. Space out clothes on hangers to assist air flow among them. Set the Natural Air™ Purifier on "High" and the fan about half-speed and let it run for at least an hour. Not only freshens the clothes, but destroys any lingering odor from shoes.

Deodorize pet areas.

Pet bed areas, or (especially) cat litter box areas, often need odor control. Elevate the Natural Air™ above and facing the area to be treated, set both "Purify" and the fan on "High," run for one to two hours. The Natural Air™ will even remove the scent of cat urine embedded in carpet and other floor covering! Be patient! Heavy cat urine odors may take six to twelve hours to eliminate.

Freshen-up your car.

Place your Natural Air™in an elevated position (the center console, for example) in your car. Connect with a three-prong (grounded) extension cord to a nearby outlet. Set "Purify" and fan on "High." Run for 1 hour. For maximum effect, run the car's air-conditioner on "Re-circulate) for about half an hour.

Sports shoes and equipment.

Put sports shoes and sweat-scented equipment within about three feet of the Natural Air™ Set "Purifier" on "High," set fan on "Low." Run for 30 minutes to an hour or until "sniff-test" determines de-odorizing is complete.

Destroy mold.

Molds have the potential to cause a variety of health problems. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions, such as hay fever symptoms, in some sensitive people. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. Certain molds -- best known is stachybotrys -- have the potential to produce extremely potent toxins that can cause problems ranging from sinus infections to lung hemorrhage to brain damage.

 


 

Natural Air Owner's Manual


SETTING UP your new  Natural Air™ air regenerator.

1. In the carton you'll find:

  1. Natural Air™ unit

  2. Remote control unit with (2) AAA batteries

  3. Instruction Manual

  4. Wall mounting bracket with mounting hardware

2. Select the most suitable place to put your unit. (See note 1 below) We strongly suggest a location about 6 feet above the floor such as on a china case, top of bookshelves, and near the cold-air return of your home's air-conditioning unit. LEAVE A SPACE OF AT LEAST 3 INCHES BETWEEN THE WALL AND THE BACK OF YOUR UNIT so that it has proper air flow.

3. Plug into wall outlet (110-115V AC). If an extension cord is required, use only a cord to match that supplied with the unit.

4. Put the two AAA batteries into the remote.

5. Turn on machine by pushing "Power" button, on the unit or remote.

6. Using remote's arrow buttons, adjust regeneration level, then fan speed. We suggest setting the machine to its lowest regeneration level for the first 24 hours of operation. Adjust fan speed as desired. See Note 2.

Now step back a few feet from the front of the unit and sniff the mountain-fresh breeze coming from your  Natural Air™ as it begins to freshen the room.

Study the suggested uses for your  Natural Air™ unit on the attached pages.

Note 1: Where to place your  Natural Air™ for regular normal use (when you're not using it to clean your bathroom, closets, bedding, etc) we suggest the room where you and your family spend most of their time. If the room has a paddle (ceiling) fan, so much the better, it will help move the  Natural Air™ regeneration elements into every nook and cranny. For multi-story houses, we suggest placement on the main or ground floor.

Note 2: Control Settings: Every home, every environment and every person is different, The various settings allow you to match regeneration level and fan speed to your environment and your use of the unit. You, your nose and your ears are the best judges of what settings are best. Your goal is a pleasant "fresh air" scent throughout the room at a fan speed that is minimally audible.

Using the Unit at Maximum level - The highest regeneration level. This setting can be used to deal with a specific problem area. Square feet/square meter are indicated on the control panel as a guideline for adjustment. We suggest you close off the room and leave the immediate area while the unit is operating at this level.

For particular purification needs, see the attached "Getting the Most from your Natural Air™ page attached.

Questions, problems, suggestions? Call or E-mail us.

Now sit back and enjoy Mother Nature's greatest gift: pure, healthful fresh air with a little assist from your new Natural Air™.

Maintaining your Natural Air™ for best performance

KEEP YOUR Natural Air™ EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE

Your Natural Air™ air regenerator requires so little care that it's easy to forget the simple maintenance procedures that will keep it running at top efficiency and effectiveness. Just follow the simple steps below and your Natural Air™ will keep delivering cleansing and mountain-fresh air for years.

Every four to six weeks:
Visually inspect the two air filter screens at the back of the unit. If you see evidence that they are becoming clogged with dust bunnies, pet hair, etc., simply brush or vacuum the accumulation of dust from the screen using a soft bristle brush (a small paint brush is ideal.

Once a year (or more frequently in heavy or oily smoke environments), remove the screens to visually inspect and/or clean the generating plates inside.

a. IMPORTANT! Before doing the following, disconnect the power by pulling the plug from the wall socket.

b. Using a small Phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screws holding each screen in place.

c. Remove and clean each screen by brushing. If there is an oily residue, wash gently with dish-washing soap and rinse clean under a faucet. Set each screen aside to drain and dry.

d. Visually inspect the two generators, one on each side of the unit. These are thin, cream colored, rectangular ceramic "plates," approximately 1 3/4" by 3". If they appear coated with dust, carefully remove them, clean with ammonia and water, rinse them in running water and let them dry before re-installing. Caution: don't bend or drop them on a hard surface, as they may break. Don't put a broken plate back in the unit. Contact Comtech Research for a replacement.

e. To remove generators:
(1) Resting your fingers on the top of the case, use your thumb to lift and move aside the white plastic "hold-down" that keeps the ozone generator plates in place.

(2) Grasp the top of the plate and lift straight up past the shiny metal power tabs until it clears its mounting slots. Rinse and let dry. Do not put wet or moist plates back into the unit!

f. To replace ozone generator plates:
(1) With your fingers on the back of the unit, use your thumb to pull the closest metal power tab slightly aside and, with the other hand, gently slide the generator back into its mounting slots. Make sure that the generator plate is in both the inner and outer slots.

(2) Lift the tip of the plastic "hold-down" up and over the generator plate so that it seats in the notch.

(3) Visually check that the metal power tabs on each side are firmly touching the ozone plates.

g. Replace the cleaned and dried outer screens. Fit the screen by sliding the front tapered edge behind the outer casing, then swing the back into place so that the screen depresses the inner safety switch. Insert and tighten "gently snug" the two screws holding each screen in place.

h. Wipe the outer case with a clean, damp cloth (please, no chemical, soap sprays, acetone or alcohol), replace the power plug into the wall receptacle, and turn your Natural Air™ back on.

Wasn't that simple? So easy you'll probably never need to refer to these instructions again.

Important Note: The generator screens (ozone plates) are the only user-maintained elements within the Natural Air™ case. Removing or loosening any other element is totally unnecessary and will void all warranties.


Deodorizing a Car

The inside of your car will smell fresher than outdoors after the treatment with the Natural Air.

Tobacco smoke, "old car smell", just about any unpleasant odor. There will be no trace of either the unwanted odor or ozone afterwards. It will even remove mildew smells, if the water leak causing the mildew has been corrected and the car is dry.

How to do it: The Natural Air is simply placed on a stool in the back seat (or in the rear window) with the ozone blowing towards the windshield. It is suggested that you run the air conditioner fan on high during the deodorization process, to circulate the air throughout the air conditioner and heater ducts. The ozone and fan are turned up all the way; the vehicle is then closed up tightly, and after 30 minutes the doors should be opened and the ozone shut off. You will not smell any tobacco or ozone odor after that.

Thirty minutes is the usual time to completely deodorize a car, and it is very rare to have to run it as long as an hour to get rid of even strong or unusual odors.

No one should be in the vehicle while the ozone generator is running, since the ozone concentration will be very high at these maximum settings.


 

About Air Quality, Air Filters and Air Regenerators

Why is "fresh air" fresh?

A big, deep breath of fresh mountain or seashore air. Makes you feel good physically, mentally, and spiritually, doesn't it?

Scientists are attempting to discover just why it is that, say after a thunderstorm, people seem so energized. Or why when a dry hot wind blows off the desert people seem to irritable.

They've learned that one reason for that good feeling is the "balance" of elements (including Ozone and negative ions) in the air we breath. When the air is "balanced" or regenerated by lightning and moving water (waterfalls or ocean waves) our mood is light and spirits lifted. When the air is "unbalanced" by pollutants such as dust, bacteria, chemicals, etc., we're discomforted -- our moods are darker, we don't feel as good as we think we should.

The beauty of negative ions

Beside being "mood elevators," negative ions are Mother Nature's air cleaners. Pollution-bearing positive ions are attracted to them like iron to a magnet. When negative ion and pollution-bearing positive ion come together, the combined matter is too heavy to float and falls to the earth.

Negative ions are short-lived. They need to be constantly replenished. Tightly closed and insulated offices and homes keep negative ions out while allowing positive ions to accumulate.

An ion generator such as used in the Natural Air™ regeneration process constantly replenishes negative ions in the atmosphere. These not only improve our sense of well-being, but remove contaminants from the air.

The cleansing power of Ozone.

Ozone is "activated oxygen," (O3) a form of oxygen that carries three atoms instead of the more common two (O2). The three-atom form of oxygen is highly unstable. It seeks out and deposits its excess third atom on organic molecules it comes in contact with. Organic molecules such as those creating odors (onions, cooking odors, etc) and other molecules can be "oxydized," -- deactivated or destroyed -- by the free oxygen atom.

As one of Mother Nature's most effective cleansers, Ozone flows freely over surfaces and into crevices, reducing odors and contaminants. Ozone can also attack Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) odors emitted from glue, paint, carpet, plastics, plywood and other composite materials as well as lingering odors left by powerful household cleaning products.

Ozone FAQ

The difference between an air regenerator and an air filter.

An air regenerator mimics to the fullest extent possible Mother Nature's own air freshening/cleansing properties. Air regenerators such as Natural Air™ don't require filters or powerful fans. They send their air cleansing elements out into the air, rather than pull air through a filter to clean it.

An air filter is basically a screen which traps and holds pollutants from the air its fan pulls through it. Filters fine enough to trap smoke require a strong fan. As the filter traps more and more particulates, more and more fan power is required. Filters fill up with entrapped matter and must be frequently changed.

To truly cleanse the air of contaminants such as smoke and the fine dust that enters the lungs, a filter must trap particles as small as .01-1 micron. One micron equals 1/25,400th of an inch. Even then, all of the air in the room must somehow go through the filter.

Air regenerators such as the Natural Air™, however, make particles larger and Mother Nature (gravity) does the rest.

Why you should be concerned about the quality of indoor air.

  • Air pollution poses a health hazard in forty percent of all buildings, according to the World Health Organization.
     
  • Twenty percent of all employees suffer major illness related to indoor air pollution. Illnesses include allergies, asthma, and auto-immune disease.
     
  • Some 6,000 new chemical compounds are developed each year. Many of these are used indoors, at home or at work. Their fumes join with those of older compounds, such as the formaldehyde used in carpet and building materials.
  • On average, indoor air is 2-10 times more polluted than the worst outdoor air.
     
  • Virus and bacteria, including those that cause the flu and TB, thrive in the ductwork and heating/cooling coils of air conditioning systems. Some HVAC systems have been found to contain up to 27 different species of fungi.

Based on information given at the First Annual Air Quality Convention sponsored by the EPA, Tampa, Fl, April 1992.
