The VP6DX team worked the ARRL DX contest while simultaneously taking 
callers from all areas, with great success and a detriment to no one.

VP6DX placed 3rd world with nearly 5.6 M points while logging ~ 4K 
additional CW Qs during the same period.  Nearly 10,000 Q's were logged on
SSB during the same contest period.

K5D can do the same if they so desire, to the benefit of both the DXpedition 
AND the contest.  It just takes desire and skill to accomplish both goals at
the same time.

Mis dos centavos.
