	Hmmmm....  interesting tidbit, Don.   I think I

Sounds like they need a little mentoring regarding

	I take the point, but these guys have been
	doing well in contests for a very long time,
	and it will be difficult to change their
	habits.   We set a record in a couple of
	smaller contests, so we can do OK when
	we want to.
	The issue is not between bands, but the CW
	guys with K3s complaining they can sometimes
	hear the SSB guys on TT gear on the SAME BAND.
	I would love to solve the problem without
	starting a brand loyalty range war.

	Also, I am the newest, youngest member,
	so I gotta be right and well prepared to make
	any headway... I have a lot of tradition
	and experience to overcome if I propose any
