I guess I'm naive, but I always thought that it was illegal to operate beyond
your license capabilities, even under a higher class licensee's callsign.
 For example,
I know for a fact, that WA2OVE and WB2VYA primarily operated 10 meters in
order to avoid this problem at N2AA/K2GL multi-multis.  Of course, this is
ancient history.

The two, above mentioned, formerly"upgrade challenged", individuals are now 
KR2J and KR2Q respectively.

Bill, W7LZP, is quite right there are shareware programs that
allow you to redefine the keyboard keys.  I use QK (Quick Key)
for performing repetative functions, such as changing all former
USSR prefixes within DXBASE.  However, from an ergonomics point
of view, I find the additional keys on the Maxi Switch keyboard
to be more flexible. Of course, YMMV.

I have just discovered a source of azimuthal-equidistant maps that may be of
interest to contesters.  The Geography and Mapping Division of the U.S.
Library of Congress (+1 202-707-6277) has a series of  3' x 3' (roughly 90
cm square) maps of this type published in the early 1960s by the U.S. Navy,
centered on various locations in the United States and abroad.  The library
can make a full-size black and white copy for walk-in customers for $6,
"while you wait."  Mail-in customers may require shipping/handling charges.
Should you want to call in and determine whether there's a map there to meet
your needs, or to find out about shipping, mention call number G.3202.B72,
which is the common call number for all of the maps in this series.
