    ARRL has little to do with politics of foreign countries, so bitching to them is about useless.

    What world you been living in man? The ARRL created DXCC, which is why they go to the rare ones. This is consistent with the behavior of 5a,
    the previous 7o. The ARRL does have power in this issue! They set the standards for any countries or dxpeditioner's qualifying standards. NO
    country should be exempt for working a new one. 7o can say no-yes, they have the right; the ARRL has the moral right in denying an operation
    that refuses to work all our brother and sister hams. I am at the top of the honor roll but would gladly be acceptable to the ARRL doing the LEGAL
    and moral thing in relation to their DXCC rules....Maybe you need to read the qualifying standards the ARRL has put on the table for this award.

    I think we all know that. What we (ARRL) do is control the acceptability of such activities for DXCC purposes which is after all the only incentive for conducting this expedition. Absent DXAC approval, such behavior would not be tolerated.

    I don't see how they can police it unless there is a Yemen police officer sitting next to the Op for each and every contact. And, judging on the intensity of the team, they will make probably 200K contacts, who is going to go over the log?

    But, if they Violate the rules and Pi$$ off the authorities, then they could rule the WHOLE DXpedition invalid, jail the ops in a Yemen prison for the rest of their lives, and ALL of Amateur Radio loses!

    A similar thing COULD happen in P5. And they could say they could work the WHOLE WORLD all they want but no USA stations! WOW, would that be dicey!

    I know but doubt he has the character to admit it.. But it's good to expose it for what it is.
