The is not the DX reflector but I'll answer anyway:
The X5 prefix is used by Serbs operating in Bosnia. They are NOT licensed
by Bosnia. They don't count for DXCC, or as a country multiplier in any DX
contest that I know of. Only T9 stations count as Bosnia.
4O4D is also heard from time to time, same story.
