According to the K5D web site, Desecheo is:
The 6th most-needed DXCC entity world-wide.
The 3rd most-needed DXCC entity in Europe.
The 2nd most-needed DXCC entity in Asia.
This is probably from The DX Magazine's most recent poll.
For them to operate in the ARRL DX Contest would use time they should spend
filling the worldwide need for Desecheo.
Yes, given Desecheo's location, they may well have openings to the U.S./Canada
on 10 Meters during the contest. I say let them devote every minute to working
the rest of the world, for those who play DXCC.
