What's missing from this picture?

Operators, of course!

Most of the contest operations at WAIH are in the multi-operator, multi-transmitter class.
It takes a large crew to keep on the air 48 hours;  here are some of the operators that make it work:

Paul Bittner, WAIH, after logging a new one on 80M CW in the 2006 CQ Worldwide DX Contest.
For Paul, CQWW is THE contest!
