Dear reader of the DX-NL,
it was exactly two years ago when Uwe, DL9GOA, started his new career as the editor of the DX-NL. Editing this weekly published DX Newsletter requires somebody who is always well informed concerning all DX activities going on and coming up. The collection and analysis of all the information from the packet radio network and internet, mails from active DXpeditioners and last not least all the information picked up on the air from the editor are necessary presuppositions for the work of the editor. Uwe did this job always with great enthusiasm and accuracy. It is nice to see that the co- operation with German DXers has come to a point where most of the planned German DXpeditions are first announced in the DX Newsletter. This and the circumstance that the DX-NL - translated into English by Bob, DL7VOA - is posted in the internet and the packet radio network are the reasons for the worldwide acceptance of the DX-NL as an DX information bulletin. A special culmination in 1996 was the DX Newsletter no. 1000 which was published in advance of the HAM RADIO fair in Friedrichshafen. After two years of much activity Uwe decided to spend more time with his family and his job. This decision was not easy since he really enjoyed his work as the editor of the DX-NL. We all like to thank Uwe for his great job and we wish him for the future all the best and much fun with our common hobby. Starting on January 1, 1997 Michael Oerter, DJ5AV, is the new editor of the DX Newsletter. He is 58 years old, retired and a wellknown and active DXer. We are glad that Michael agreed to be the new editor of the DX Newsletter and we wish him all the best while doing this new job.
