There may be some advantage to being a guest op. The top three SOAB  
scores in the last CQWW CW contest were made by guest ops and the top  
US score was also a guest op.

How about the guest operator who shows up before the contest for a
single-op operation, while the host spends the weekend fixing things the

actually be there.

Personally, I've always just disregarded guest op scores when comparing
them to my own.
