[CQ-Contest] DJ7MH

I didn’t say WA1BXY was KN1GUN/DJ7MH, just that that the web page for KN1GUN said “via WA1BXY”.  C’mon man, give me a little credit for reading comprehension!  <g>


I did not work DJ7MH over the weekend… I didn’t work anyone outside of Florida, as it turned out, due to propagation at the times I was able to operate… so I have no knowledge as to whether or not he was operating from Germany or via a US remote station.  I was simply answering Mike’s question, or if you prefer request for more information, regarding the call.


That the QRZ.COM pages for both of Mario’s calls (as per your other email) are now gone is… interesting.  Of course, Mario’s US call is still shown on other sites, such as AE7Q’s.  Regardless, let’s hope that this was a simple misunderstanding that can be quickly cleared up, not a nefarious attempt to bend the rules.

Hi Ron,


No, WA1BXY is another fellow.   KN1GUN is licensed to his location.


I wrote WA1BXY yesterday, and here was his reply:


" He holds a USA call, yes with my address but does not reside here. 

I have no knowledge of his operating remotely this weekend. I was contesting this weekend with club call. I do know he usually signs /w# of what remote station/state he is operating from. "


" he usually signs /w# "   No.  Wrong.   He holds the USA License KN1GUN.   He MUST operate with that callsign anytime, remote or otherwise if the transmitter is in the United States.


So, using his DL call in the US is forbidden, as is this other practice.


WA1BXY said he will tell Mario about the regulations.     I fear this is willful ignorance.


I presume he is one of the many European hams who operate stations on Remotehams and fail to sign the correct call.


Not good.

His QRZ.COM page lists DJ7MH as "The Mighty Marvelous Mario, Triple M aka
Mr. QLF".  His page is managed by KN1GUN (previously KC1FOT), who also
happens to be "Mario", via WA1BXY. 

So perhaps WA1BXY or KN1GUN can shed some light on the subject station.
