    Yeah, for sure. I worked for 4 years in Israel and had a good buddy there, we are both hams and had a good bit in common, he worked for Intel in Jerusalem and that was where I was assigned as an outside contractor for Varian, my field being ion implanters and his field was instrumentation calibration.
