This is another supplement to my initial P5 â€œCW ONLYâ€ and IOTA AS-197 Activation Project Proposal general information prior to INFO UPDATES #1 & #2. If you have not read the general information page and/or subsequent updates, then please do so first. In INFO UPDATE #3 I stated:
Regarding any future P5 operations, I have not yet made a final decision about whether or not to implement my growing â€œBlacklistâ€ of the repeat offender â€œAnti-Social Pileup Bulliesâ€ I continually observe in every pileup on the bands these days. They are easy to spot if one listens to the DXpedition operator *and* inside the Pileup at the same time. An additional INFO UPDATE may be forthcoming when and if deemed appropriate.
As behind-the-scenes efforts for P5 License Approval by my NGO Contact continue along with 5 competing groups in the quest, I have made a final decision about implementing a â€œBlacklistâ€ should P5/K6VVA become a reality at some point in time. Anti-Social Pileup Behavior was out of control in the FT5ZM pileups, and then shortly thereafter with the 3C0BYP Expedition. As I briefly monitored the TX6G â€œUP EUâ€ pileup on 30m CW tonight, the UN-disciplined â€œEUâ€ pileup callers were an abomination.
With over 1,400 callsign entries in the spreadsheet of chronic OUT-OF-TURN-CALLERS and â€œBULLY LIDSâ€ observed in pileups since the last update, what I observed tonight was the â€œstraw that broke the camelâ€™s back.â€ I am not talking about an occasional â€œmis-timedâ€ call, but rather blatant, perpetual UN-Disciplined LID calling in the pileups.
Therefore, be aware that any chronic pileup caller LIDS observed from this point forward will be added to the existing list – now the Official â€œP5 BLACKLISTâ€. Any callsigns on this list will be flagged as â€œDNQâ€ (DO NOT QSO) from P5. LID operating has consequences.
An additional INFO UPDATE may be forthcoming when and if deemed appropriate.
