LIDS Proposes A Guantanamo Solution

With the recent announcement by the Obama administration that it intends to close the Guantanamo Bay prison, concerns have been expressed both inside and outside the amateur radio community.

Within the amateur radio community many worry that the reduction in presence at Guantanamo Bay may make KG4 a more rare entity in the DX world. Without the large number of military personnel at Guantanamo, the opportunities for radio activation may become scarce.

Outside the insular world of DXers, many Americans worry about bringing dangerous terrorists to the United States and the threat they may pose. The Lost Island DX Society (LIDS) has a proposal that should make all parties (except those within the prison) happy. LIDS proposes the only solution that can make both DXers and ordinary American citizens happy and safe.

Move the prison to Navassa (KP1).
