   I ahve a list of transmission start times and a known transmission 
length.  I want to finc out how many of the transmissions overlap one 
another.  Can anyone think of a quick way to do this.  Brute force is very 
slow.  By brute force I mean comparing the start time of each start time to 
evry other start time to see if they are within the transmission time.  
I've been trying to figure out a MMA algorithm that would be analogous to 
plotting all of the transmit times and counting the overlaps but I'm not 
sure how to do this.  Any suggestions?
   Thanks in advance,
