Whoa! Until some solid information comes forth that the KP1-KP5 project had a connection with the last KP5 trip, let's NOT drag them into this!
All we know is that someone, an amateur, complained. We do NOT know who it is. We do NOT know where she or he actually lives. We do NOT know their connection, if any, to the congress-gonif. We do NOT know whether or not they are an active amateur. We do NOT know if they are an active DX'er... or anything else besides the propensity to kvetch. And most importantly, we do NOT know if they have ANYTHING to do with the KP1-5 project. For all we know, if that project ever merits some success, this schmuck will complain about them too! Enough poor souls are going to get dragged through the mud as it is. Let's not add the innocent until and unless we KNOW that innocent they ain't! 73 From: Peter Dougherty <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Thu Jun 29 08:45:16 CDT 2006 To: Scott Manthe <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, Charles Harpole <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [DX-CHAT] Desecheo I. answers At 09:22 AM 06/29/2006, Scott Manthe wrote: >Like it or not, our politics drive our actions.

I suppose that someone with a lot of time on their hands could ascertain the ZIP codes contained in the WV 3rd congressional district, do a Buckmaster or similar search and see if any known DXers with ties to the KP1-KP5 project come up....
