                    >>> 425 DX NEWS * MAILING LIST PROBLEMS <<<

Owing to the growing number of subscribers, the 425 DX News Mailing Lists
are having serious problems beyond our control,  and there is a fairly high
 risk that they simply stops working. We are now working on widening the
number  of volunteers  involved  in  the  time  consuming  mailing  list
and  web  site administration, in order to provide the reliable service our
readers used  to enjoy. At all events, 425 DX News continues being compiled
and made available on the  PacketCluster and  via the  DX Mailing  Lists.
Thank you  for  being patient during this  period of transition,  and please
pass the  word on  to 425DXN subscribers.
