  Why not have a team

>>>"judging" whether an expedition has "acceptable" permission -- Majority

I have two questions:

1)  Is this the right place for a DXCC discussion?
2)  What makes a board member an undesirable or incorrect person to judge
the acceptability of a dxpedition?

EVERYTHING costs more than it used to.  Naturally, the fees should reflect this.

I really have a tough time accepting this theory.  I know a few board
members and I just don't believe it.

Thanks to all who responded with comments and opinions about
using the 1000MP as a contest radio.  Collected my first
JA1MP QSL card and used the radio during the 160 contest. 
Had no overload/IMD problems and all that was at the
headphones was supposed to be there. 

These opinions are my own and my province only!
Opinions expressed are not those of FORCE 12, but
are mine totally!!
