However, if they have internet capabilities in P5, then can work themselves.

Hi Paul,

Think about an eventual P5 activation, a mega one, with lots of ops.

The likelyhood that many of them will not have P5 already confirmed, is a
real possibility. They will be there making a lot of people happy, but not
adding that ATNO themselves, unless another ham operate from their home
station. And P5 being what it is, another activation may take a few
generations to happen again.

would operate his home station. This action of visiting ops operating
stations of guys on DXpeditions continues to this day and contacts made like
this should be and are considered to be completely valid. You should
consider re-evaluating the contacts made by your good friend.
