I meant URL for the FCC bz2 files.  I have bunzip2.  All I see on the 
fcc website is zip.  I use Xastir's fcc-get file run monthly by a cron 
job and bz2 would probably help a bit.  I suppose there is a tradeoff 
depending on network speed and CPU speed, since bunzip2 is a bit slower 
than unzip.

Which gets violated quite often, I suspect.
