The standard calls for symmetrical Plain Doubles methods are those that 
only affect the places made when the hunt bell is leading. 
Conventionally these are
1: Omit
125: Extreme
123: Single
145: Bob

Of course, at most three of these are possible, as one is always the 
plain lead. Calls that merely change the length of a course are not 
permitted, so a bob is out in this case.

The only possible extents are those mentioned by Fred, i.e. pppx or opox 
three times (mix and match).
