Once again the DX Magazine collects information for the "Most Wanted List" from DXers all over the world. The easiest way to submit your Most Wanted's is online at http://www.dxpub.com. The results will be published in Jan/Feb 2001 and will have an influence on the destinations of future DXpeditions.
Since July 1, 2000 Australia has new different postage stamps for letters within Australia and for those who go abroad. Putting a wrong stamp onto your letter will result in additional costs down under!
Though I checked the dates in CQ-DL 5/2000 the times for the IARU Region 1 Fieldday in DXNL 1212 were wrong! The SSB part lasts from 1300Z till 1259Z! I am very sorry.
If you announce a DXpedition it will be published not in the next DXNL but in the edition prior the activity itself. Since the original paper version of the DX Newsletter has to fit on two DIN A4 pages only very big and important DXpeditions will be announced more than once.
