With this edition of the DX Newsletter I finish being the editor of this DX
bulletin after four years of work. During this period of time I learned much
about Windows, Word and the Internet itself, have got many DX information
from the first hand and experienced much help from my family and other DXers
from all over the world. Now I would like to spend more time with my family,
with travelling and with DXing. Incoming relevant information will be forwarded, but my phone/fax line +49/7554/990775 will be cut on Dec 31.
I wish my readers all the best for Xmas and the New Year and say good bye
with a "cu in the pile up".
