Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all readers of the DX Newsletter. Let us have a good time with our hobby and many nice QSOs to put in our logs. Once again many thanks to the radio amateurs who sent me information all over the year! If I cannot reply to every mail I receive, be sure that I need every one and there would be no DXNL without your information! The next DX Newsletter will be published on Jan 6, 2005. - Karlfried, DL1EK
