K1VR adds:  K1GQ (ex-K2SIL, ex-W8SH op., ex-KH6RS principal op) can write
with his left hand and send with his right. If you haven't heard him
using his call lately, he's been the 40 meter CW op at K1AR multi-multi
and multi-single efforts. It is a fascinating experience to watch when
K1GQ and K1AR work 40 together (side-by-side), in multi-single.  The
rates are enormous.
