Dear fellow hams,

After 13 years of providing hams with no cost web space, e-mail forwarding and mailing list services through and, I have decided to retire. All and servers and Internet connections at my home QTH are being turned down.

Scott KA9FOX has graciously decided to pick up where I left off, and he is in the process of migrating all services to new hardware. See below for an update on the status of the migration.


This week's bulletin was made possible with information provided by NC1L, W2EN, the OPDX Bulletin, DXNL, 425 DX News, The Daily DX, Contest Corral from QST and the ARRL Contest Calendar and WA7BNM web sites. Thanks to all.
