Reminds me of when, years ago, W3GM (then W3BES) and W3EBG were
single-station multi-op entries in the SS.  Folks operated 40 out of 66
hours in the SS back then (over two weekends), so each station put in 33
hours.  When one found a mult, they simply switched calls and worked it again.

W3EBG, of course, was W3BES's son --and it was perfectly OK for family
members to operate in this manner.  Perhaps the Green Hornet should adopt
Dr. Bafoofnik.
