John, are we allowed use of 40 meters on a secondary basis?  Wasn't this one 
of the reasons the FCC under Johnson reduced output power to 1500 PEP rather 
than 2 KW PEP.  That showed the overseas broadcasters we were cooperating.

I know many years ago they complained mightily about the hams in Region 2 
were over riding the broadcast stations.
