NOT THE MANAGER ---> Steve, 9M6DXX understands that the DX4Win program  shows
a JA QSL manager for 9M6DXX. This is incorrect: this callsign has never  been
issued before, and Steve has never had a QSL manager in Japan (or elsewhere).
The only correct QSL route for 9M6DXX is direct only (there is no functioning
QSL bureau in  East Malaysia)  to Steve  Telenius-Lowe, WDT  527, 88905  Kota
Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. Do not use his old address is in England, as Steve
left the country 8 months ago and mail  is no longer being forwarded to  him.

manager for EK3GM and EK3AA (both were via DK6CW), as well as UK8OAM.
