TX0DX went QRT on March 29 (not March 25) shortly after 0000 UTC. Furthermore I got corrections for following statements (DXNL 1188, 1192): HI1HI 7002 0448Z via K2WG - NOT via K3WG! In the packet radio DX cluster the QSL route was spotted as K3WG (3x), K3HG, K2AW (2x), K2EW, W2WF and NOT K2AW. Perhaps this was a PIRATE, too?
Rod Elliott, VE3IRF, collected all DX spots of the OH2AQ Web Cluster since Jan 97 and published them with an appropriate DOS program at: http://www.425dxn.org/dxspots/. More information via Maurizio Bertolino, I1-21171, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
