I believe one traffic reporter refered to a slowdown caused by the "Mt. Rainier factor" (i.e. because of a particularly spectacular view of Mt. Rainier). The most common radio term is that something is "causing a distraction". Allen maberry[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] On Sat, 23 Mar 1996, Thomas L. Clark wrote: > > > Is that term used elsewhere?
