    Yes, finally forgive (as hard as that might be,) but eternally remember, (remember the Alamo? Pearl Harbor?) and be cautious and ever vigilant . There is a saying:" keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer." With luck, an enemy may well (in due time) become a friend. THAT can only be good, if finally done in good faith on BOTH sides.

    Considering that radio receivers available in NK are supposedly able to only receive state broadcast stations and the country's history, the likelyhood of any native North Korean to become an amateur radio operator any time soon is slim to none with the possible exception of trusted government employees.

    I am currently HL1ZIX, in Korea.

    I can listen to North Korean English broadcasting after lunch, some days. It's hilarious. Last week they had a news story about how the Japanese government had produced poor quality mosquito nets, which caused their citizens to suffer from terrible bites.

    They have no love for Japan.

    Now you can see how increased spending opportunities mean harder work for everyone, and more of it, too!

    Why would you want to work a NK ham? The only legal topic of conversation would be praising their generated, veneered leader....

    Veneered? That's gotta hurt!

    Some other things need to happen before the NKs can get on the air. First they need food, clean water, medical care, and some basic infrastructure (like water, power, etc.)

    10y from now, you might find some occasional P5 contacts from hams who are native to that country, and not just the super-rich aristocrats.

    Agreed. Most of those poor folks don't even have food. Radios might be pushing it.....
