Well, perhaps one more story. In the late 80s, I and several others
operated the
CQWWSSB from V47. Now, to show the rediculous, we arranged for a top

expense, ect. Although he did operate other bands, his primary use was
when openings to JA occured in late afternoon. His rate was absolutely
fantastic, over 400+ per hour, and of course, in Japanese.

So that may well be a consideration the next time a team is put
together. Believe me, he had his buddies at home lined up like ducks
