    Kind of hard to tell because its not much codin involved. Just think in terms of phone numbers and what an exchange might be.

    Wow! Unless something has changed since the "ancient" days, - get hold of yourselves - KEnwood, WOodward, et. al. used to be "exchanges", i.e. the phone offices through which calls were routed.

    For example, my childhood phone number was KE 8-0004 where "KE" was short for "Kenwood" ('53'). 'Kenwood' was the exchange.

    In junior high school, (long before most of you were born), we were expected to convert the letters to numbers on the first day of "homeroom". (Right! Okay, anyone got a dial phone handy? Rich people had push-button phones. )

    Enough nostalgia. Offhand, I can think of no good reason why 'exchange' should be a 'double' though I'm not familiar with the phone numbers used in other countries.
