IRAQI Kurdistan to hold Independence Referendum

IRAQI Kurdistan to hold Independence Referendum. Potentially new DXCC Country on the horizon.

If you follow the Intrepid-DX Group, you know that we visited Erbil, the capitol of Iraqi Kurdistan in April 2010 and conducted the YI9PSE DXpedition. 
Since that time, we have maintained our relationship with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and followed their plans for independence. The KRG has welcomed us to return for additional amateur radio activities. 
On June 7, 2017, KRG President Massoud Barzani announced following a meeting of the Kurdish political parties that the Iraqi Kurdish region will hold an independence referendum on September 25th, 2017 as the first major step towards independence. 
The Intrepid-DX Group will continue to follow developments from the KRG as they move towards independence. If they declare independence and all conditions are in place for UN acceptance, we will again hope to join forces with our friends the Tifariti Gang ( and activate Kurdistan together just as we joined teams to activate the new Republic of South Sudan in August/September 2011. 
You can follow our progress at www.Intrepid-DX.Com or on our Facebook Page. 
Thank you, 
Paul S. Ewing-N6PSE
Vice President and Founder
The Intrepid-DX Group

    I did not see the policy
    why are you writing a political message?
    Hey members;
    Do you agree with Paul’s remarks?
    You are not an amateur, you are an agency and you are separatist.
    You have hidden Turkish enmity inside.
    Do not do it. If you amator radio station do it.
    We only have to deal with amateur and amateur activities.

    Please Read;

    Radio Amateurs should stay away from political views. But Paul is entirely in political political behavior.

    What is KRG? >> PKK, PYD, PJAK IŞID, ……… ie terrorist organization. How can you expect such a situation for Amateur Radio !!!

    if the traces of terrorist organizations near you come to the so-called declaration of independence are you going to call them DXCC status?

    For example, Paul Paul N6PSE, I ask you how you acted if any of the terrorist organizations in the US were to seek so-called independence. “What did you do?”

    We have lost 50,000 people to terrorist organizations in the last 35 years. Have you lost your citizens in these numbers?

    Leave the radio amateur job as a hobby. Stay away from political and political propaganda.

    Please delete the article on DXCoffee Do not make political or political propaganda.
