The Lone Star DX Association in conjunction with Dr. David Borenstein
announces the following:
Dr. David Borenstein, KA2HTV, will be traveling to Pyongyang, Democratic
People's Republic of Korea, "North Korea" during the month of August. He has
received written permission from the "North Korean" government to operate as
P5/KA2HTV during his stay. While radio operating is not the primary reason
for his visit, Dr. Borenstein hopes to be able to operate 1-2 hours a day
and will stay an additional three days devoted entirely to radio operation.
For security reasons, he will only operate SSB and primarily 20 meters. Dr.
Borenstein will arrive on August 9th and depart on the 23rd. QSL requests
should be sent to KK5DO. Operation from P5 is at the pleasure of the host
country so the DX community should keep their collective fingers crossed
that all goes well and they do not change their minds.
The ARRL has reviewed the Dr. Borenstein's plan and if and when P5/KA2HTV
occurs, it will likely count.
Dr. Borenstein notes that while his operating time will be limited, the
success of this operation will lead to further P5 operations in the near
future. Much of the equipment being taken will remain there, pre-positioned
for subsequent operations.
The Lone Star DX Association (LSDXA) is the sponsoring DX organization for
this operation. View the P5/KA2HTV banner.

Dr. David Borenstein, KA2HTV는 북한당국으로부터 그가 평양에 머무르는동안 P5/KA2HTV로 운용할수 있는 수기로 작성된 허가서를 받았다고 합니다.
그는 이번 북한방문의 목적은 햄 운용이 주된 것은 아니기 때문에 하루에 한두시간씩 운용을 할 것이지만 3일동안은 전적으로 햄운용을 하겠다고 하는데 주로 20 meters에서 SSB로 운용을 할 것이랍니다.
