At the Riverside Convention, SCCCer Chip Margelli, K7JA, advised me
that Yaesu had two job openings that might appeal to contesters or
DXers. In spite of the fact that all SCCC members are high-end guys
who command really high salaries, he still seemed interested.

I was only going to mention the jobs in the previous message, but
since Chip sent me the actual descriptions, here they are. If you or
anyone else are interested, contact information follows.

Having recently converted my hobby into a full-time job, I thought
others of you might have a similar interest. This opportunity has the
feature that you likely get paid.
