Abstract. Cholak, Goncharov, Khoussainov, and Shore [J. Symbolic Logic 64 (1999) 13 - 37] showed that for each k>0 there is a computably categorical structure whose expansion by a constant has computable dimension k. We show that the same is true with k replaced by omega. Our proof uses a version of Goncharov's method of left and right operations.
