I heard a rumor that the disputed Scarborough Reef was going to become 4 new entities – one rock for China, one for Vietnam, one for Korea and one for the Philippines. They would be called:
BS7C – China Rock
BS7V – Vietnam Rock
BS7K – Korea Rock
and BS7P – Philippines Rock
Each will have a special umbrella made – to look like the flag of that country.
The biggest rock will have a big “X” drawn on it and all 4 countries can operate on it simultaneously – but it isn’t a separate entity. Its call will be:
BS7FFA – meaning “Free For All”, and here is what its flag will look like:
Scarborough Reef will be deleted. Watch this space – a 5th entity could be added to appease Taiwan who feels slighted because they didn’t get a rock. In true International Spirit and cooperation, the United Nations, US F&W and Jamaican Bobsled Team are working together on the case searching for a rock for Taiwan.
The QSL Card Manager will be Roger Beep, P5QRX, with instant uploads via NOQRS and NOTW. . . . .
Good luck in the pileups!
