Truth is that when you’re writing not only for your blog, the struggle with deadlines gets continuous. So, your personal space, that should be a priority, finds you with very poor update time. All this to say that, if you haven’t stumbled into it somewhere else (for example, on QRZ.com’s forum it scored a nice number of comments), I wrote a story for DXCoffee.com on the 7O6T (Yemen) and 6O0CW (Somalia) DXpeditions, which was intended as a thought-provoking opening of a dialogue on some geopolitical/ethical sides of these two advenutres. Altough the beauty isn’t in the eye of the beholder, I’d say, since it went online, that it made some debate. Aside QRZ.com, it has been featured on VA3QV’s blog, and I’ve been contacted by the South Hills ARC and North Florida DX bulletins for publication. Also, the Brazilian edition of CQ Magazine (run by the owner of the DXBrasil website) has shown some interest, and in Italy the thread on the ARI Fidenza board is getting some readings. I can’t be but happy, if amateur radio operators start to talk about these sides of the hobby, because in the end it’s the reason why my pen went on paper. First and capital, however, is to do that in a civilian and polite way. If you’d contribute, and haven’t read the story yet, you can find it here in English, or here in Italian. I look forward to your two cents!
