Isn't there a major DX contest coming up this weekend?

Now back to DX:

Since I brought this up (and desire to close the thread), Doug K1DG
pointed me to an explanation on the
ARRL web site:


Here's the part of the article relevant to the 1x1 call discussion:

"The FCC's action prompted an idea from ARRL Rocky Mountain Director
Walt Stinson, W0CP, who was among the 1993 AH1A team members. "No
DXpedition since AH1A has been permitted to obtain a relevant prefix
designator, although many have sought them," he said this week."
