    In my opinion, why waste your time amd money using open
    bands. They are technically meaningless, in the grand scheme
    of things. You may know that you personally placed them on a
    certain bird who matches up with certain records but an open
    band could have been placed by anyone, at anytime so they are
    not going to mean anything to a savvy buyer.
