[CQ-Contest] What's with the power = 0 watts exchange?

While I have the utmost sympathy to our fellow Amateurs in PR, I'm not certain that the ARRL DX contest is the appropriate place to make a political statement.

If that is indeed what the "00" power was meant to indicate... well, how many got the reference?   If it only sewed confusion, it didn't serve the intended goal.  If someone simply logged it and moved on without another thought, it didn't serve the intended goal.  If someone did get it... well, this isn't the appropriate venue to discuss political shenanigans either.

73, ron W3WN

This is exactly right. Rusty posted this on the NCCC reflector yesterday. =   =   =   =   =   = both NP4Z and NP4G are making statements that commercial power has still not been restored in much of Puerto Rico following last year's big storms, thus "power is zero". 73 de Rusty, W6OAT _______________________________________________ CQ-Contest mailing list CQ-Contest at contesting.com http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/cq-contest
