Hmmm....I gotta ask .Do former Motorolans other than "retired" qualify ? If so , what's the ID for Harvard , IL ?I left there in April of '01 .I can't remember the club call from there , is it still preserved? Aren't there  participating club stations in Mexico and China ? I know Motorola has thousands of people in those places .
