    You misunderstood.
    I was just agreeing with what you posted relating to his getting ripped off except for his pajamas while in the South pacific.

    Don's out of jail and still a ham, now.

    Probably too old to do more expeditions.

    He was a great CW op, though. I was a brand new ham and not a DXer during most of his escapades, but remember hearing him a few times on CW -- way before "computer sent" code existed, and he was a hot dog on CW.

    If somebody interesting about Don - in https://www.qrz.com/db/OH2BH you can find links to few video "W9WNV in Helsinki" when Don was in Helsinki . For lot of us he still an idol - greatest DX operator from mid 60's.

    I had received a request to donate for this smaller expedition, and commented that I did not see the wisdom in TWO expeditions to the same place. I suspect I and many others suggested they select another spot to visit. I'm not sure it was the other expedition per se that asked them to suspend, but I have not read their mail, either!

    In retrospect I understand why they would cancel from the monetary perspective, I had a gut reaction to reading that and of course it was third party information. Anyhow, I wish them luck if they are able to try again in 2019 and hope that I can get them in the log on at least one band slot.
