Wind is wind, whether generated by a hand pumped bellows, a blower, a steam pressure system, a mechanical air compression system, compressed gas from an air tank, or any other contrivance that causes the movement of air through plumbing systems as consequence to pressure differentials. Should the statement above be accepted, then it is impossible to = define a calliope as anything but an organ provided we all agree an organ is an instrument that generates sound by moving air through tubes that cause the air = columns to vibrate. Steam is air combined with water vapor at a high temperature, but it is still wind. Mike   "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
