T6PSE – Afghanistan (donor/sponsor refunds)

    Press Release #4

    Please accept our sincere regrets for having to cancel the DXpedition. This was a very difficult decision for us to make, particularly after we shipped all of our equipment to Afghanistan. We cancelled just hours before our flights to Kabul were to begin.

    The tragic death of Jim McLaughlin WA2EWE and the fear of reprisals for the killing of Osama Bin Laden made our security situation in Kabul very uncertain.

    Due to our significant shipping costs, we do not have all of the donation money available to refund. The DXpedition team members have increased their contributions and at this time we are refunding 90% of all donation money that was received. If this is not agreeable to you, please let me know.

    Please accept our gratitude for donating to this DXpedition.

    Paul S. Ewing-N6PSE
    Co-Leader T6PSE DXpedition.
