I have heard a rumor that the award committee would even credit an illegal P5 operation. Of course you still have to prove that you were really there
The P5 situation is so dire that perhaps the award committee would bend the rules and give them some slack
Just for giggles imagine seeing this posted on DX-World
"I'm organizing an illegal dxpedition to P5 and I'm looking for operators. No visas are required. Must be committed to travel at a moment's notice. Must have disposable equipment and income. Must enjoy the outdoors and not be afraid of manual labor. Prior dxpedition experience not necessary. Will provide food, water, and vocational job training at the conclusion of the dxpedition."
You owe me a new keyboard. Mine has coffee all up inside it now. The K3 is wet too
