Press Release #3
By N6PSE, Paul Ewing, The Intrepid-DX Group
The Intrepid-DX Group has been planning for many months to conduct a large multi-national DXpedition from Kabul, Afghanistan as T6PSE.
We had been receiving advice and assistance from Jim McLaughlin WA2EWE/T6AF, who was killed in Kabul earlier this week.
The Taliban subsequently announced their "Spring Offensive".
Last night, President Obama announced the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
Given these circumstances, and with careful consideration, we have decided to cancel our plans for a DXpedition from Afghanistan. There is just too much uncertainty in the region for us to continue to move forward with our plans.
In the next several weeks, I will refund all donor/sponsor monies that have been given to support our plans.
