I wonder if anyone else about heard this ?
>From what I can tell the local hams on St Barts aren't very happy that Martti Lane showed up on their island to do the first operation as a new DXCC country.
It sounds like Phil, FJ5DX, and the RADIO-CLUB Association des Radio-amateurs de St Barthelemy did all the footwork to get FJ added as a new country. They wanted to have a ceromony with the first QSO's being made by the locals. They
don't feel like the Finn's should of just showed up on the island without first
coordinating their efforts with that of the local radio association. Hopefully
this will not jeopardize future operations by those who might want to visit FJ.
The callsign of the RADIO-CLUB Association des Radio-amateurs de St Barthelemy is FJ5KH.
73 and Happy Holidays... Jeff KU8E
