And not that it is necessarily pertinent to Yuri's situation, but when I was
the KV4FZ operator in the 1983 CQ WW CW DX Contest, it was primarily Mrs.
Schoenbohm who I would say was the station's "control operator", with her
excellent cooking !!
I rarely saw Herb KV4FZ , and I appreciated his trust that I would treat his
station and call well. (BTW, Extra Class license was well in hand).
