Well, in actuallity, I really think the "by numbers" ops do think
everyone else is going to wait in line. Egos,,,,which are highly

As to the split frequency bit, I'd suggest his transmit frequency
would be fair game to all.

Boy, would I love to hear one of our "hot shots" take it over and
start a run!!
