Good idea, Alan! Also, just an invitation to participate in one
of the multi-op efforts might be a good incentive, and that doesn't even
have to cost a lot of money. I suspect that plenty of contesters
would pay their own way (or split $/2) to the Caribean just to take
advantage of the invitation to meet and operate with a first rate crew.
