Announcing the P5 Project.
 
IDXC 2013 Convention
Visalia, April 20th, 2013.
 
 
P5, North Korea is the most wanted DXCC entity world-wide.
Today, the Intrepid-DX Group, in partnership with the World-Wide DX Group, is announcing our sustained and ongoing effort to activate North Korea.  

For the past four years, we have been working with professionals in the business and tourism industries who are actively doing business in North Korea. We are leveraging their ideas and contacts towards our goal of a major Dxpedition over a four week period from within the DPRK. We are using the same techniques that were successful in opening up Kurdistan (Northern Iraq) South Sudan and Yemen to Dxpedition activity.

We have prepared a comprehensive, multi-faceted proposal and we have delivered it to the DPRK officials via our Chinese emissary.  Several members of our leadership and advisory team and have made multiple visits to the DPRK and are advising us accordingly. We are making further plans to visit the DPRK in the coming months to further bolster our business contacts and to research and assess various venues.

We expect this ongoing project to require a sustained effort. We are committed to work as hard and as long as it takes to activate this rare and much needed entity. We will continue negotiating and flying into and out of the DPRK as needed during this process to lay the groundwork and to build the trust to ensure that a favorable outcome can be created. We want the DX community to be aware and to understand that a sustained effort is being made to activate this rare and important entity.

Thank you,

Good Luck indeed, and I hope it's sooner rather than later....but in the current world political climate and the almost-a-shooting-war level of tension? Wowzah. Seriously, I hope this can happen and if it does, be safe!

Great news Smiley  I'm sure Paul wouldn't have announced this if he wasn't 80% sure it will happen.

Now the big question is whether this is the only announcement from Intrepid or is this just the appetizer?

The Intrepid DX Group is a very dedicated bunch so if anyone can pull it off, probably they can. I wish them luck and hope to hear them from P5 soon!

Fantastic news!
I hope this works out.  It's going to take a lot of effort and patience because even if you get the green light these people seem to thrive on pulling the chain at the last minute then saying oh it's OK now and then pull it again a half dozen times just to show supremacy. Your a better man than me if you can handle that.

Bring on Navassa.Has to be  much easier and cheaper. Plus better odds at actually activating it.
