Hmm, you know I might be confusing it with something else. I thought I had to jump, though, but maybe I'm remembering it wrong.

Otto, the test wasn't meant to be given every 6 months, but rather once a year. "Foreign stations" in TR's time were essentially South America, so giving it once a year between Dec and Feb allowed the test to be conducted in warm weather.

That is just retarded, looks like an ANG/FANG job is a no go for me.

I'm 40" the way they measure it. But I meet all other standards.
