5) Website enquiry (US Patent Application # 20040202200)

We have received an enquiry via the Pinpoint website from a Mr Razmik Hakobyan.
Razmik is a radio physicist, Doctor of physics and mathematics. He claims to
have developed a new method of data transfer by communication systems (US Patent
Application# 20040202200).

The development claims to have a number of advantages compared with the known
methods. Below you can see the \”White Paper\” of the developed method. The
request is for partner companies to collaborate in the research and
implementation of this method.

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity or, if you require
additional information, please contact Razmik directly (details at the end of
the attached document (3)). I would be grateful if you could copy me in to any
communications.
