Another point worth mentioning -- several years ago I was the last 
presenter in the antenna forum.  As often happens, there was a 
miscommunication about the end time of the forum, and 10 minutes into my 
talk the forum police appeared and told us we had to get out.  Presumably 
there will be more flexibility at the CP.

I'm with Jeff, in one respect -- if you have ANY other business at Hara the 
lack of bus transport is a PITA.  A shared cab may be the best fix.
