Внимание! Перевод важного момента экспедиции от хорошего англичанина RX9TX !!!
Desecheo приближается, обратите внимание, K5D просят тех, у кого уже
есть QSL за QSO на каком-либо диапазоне с Десечео, не звать на этом
диапазоне и дать шансы тем у кого это all-time-new-one. Не будет
никаких "специальных" ЩСЛ, соревнований кто больше наберет галочек в
клеточках, наград за максимальное количество ЩСО, и прочего.

Desecheo 2009 Press Release # 4
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
We have reserved the special call sign K5D for our upcoming Desecheo
operation. The operation will begin late in the day on Feb 12th.
QSO philosophy... because Desecheo is so very rare (#6 worldwide, #3
in Europe and # 2 in Asia) there are many, many hams worldwide that
need KP5 for an all-time new one. Therefore, we are asking that you
not contact the Dxpedition on any band/mode that you have confirmed
from a previous DXpedition. This will allow the people who really need
a new DXCC entity a better opportunity to get through the pileups.
Our objective is not to establish a world record for contacts...there
will be no "greenies", no boxes to check, no competitions for most
band/mode QSOs, no certificate or awards for contacting the Dxpedition
more times than anyone else. So, if you have KP5 already confirmed on
a particular band/mode, we respectfully ask that you exercise
restraint. If, late in the DXpedition, we are calling CQ for contacts,
we will welcome your call.
The team has encountered higher expenses than anticipated. These
mainly involve the transportation and feeding of other personnel that
will be traveling to the island with us. Approximately ten other
personnel will share our campsite and facilities for the duration of
the DXpedition. They will be on Island with us to provide security and
carry out field research. Therefore, we ask that you consider a
contribution to the DXpedition to help with these incremental
expenses. Just go to www.kp5.us and click the button that reads" How
you can Help".
We are all counting the days until we assemble in Puerto Rico on Feb
