W4AU & S56A DISCLAIMER: This report relies on my somewhat faulty memory and
some of the 
facts my be erroneous, but it's basically true, I think....
After selling kkn.net IP kernels to CISCO, Trey got involved with HC8N and
Cabrillo myths.
While ch=' ' read(ch); C-language trick used for random field spacing in
Cabrillo format.
My soapbox comment for a long time was:  It took a mathematician to produce
this standard :-)
