EDITORIAL (Update/reminder)

In the past days we have seen some scheduled dxpedition in Europe (thus we can't consider them really dxpedition because they won't be in uninhabited areas) that intend to use some "beacons" to promote their activities.
That is not a bad thing but, until now, some of those dxspeditions declared to be in beacon mode in the INTER-CONTINENTAL window.
Probably the operators never read a 6m BP or never understood the importance to keep the window 50100-50130 free for real DX (or better as IARU says for INTER-CONTINENTAL use) or they know a different one (like the Region 2 one).
To put a beacon in that portion of the band (in an highly populated area as Europe is) is not a good idea (and is not allowed at all) and it is a bad example for all 6m users.
Some persons can reply that other dxpeditions already had this kind of activities, but will be easy to reply that the "beacon mode" in INTER-CONTINENTAL portion of the band was - correctly - used only rarely and in uninhabited areas in Africa, Asia, Central America, etc. So, please, help us to explain to the EU dxpeditions organizers / operators (probably having their main interest in hf or 2m) that every band has its rules and is better to start with a correct feeling with it.
So remember that - IARU Reg. I - rules say: " NO EU-EU QSO (and no beacons) in the portion 50100-50130 in any case!
