Hey Bruce,
    Bernie happens to be good friend of mine and a true and avid 
DXer/Contester. I am sure his intentions are NOT to make it rich 
with this idea but to provide a DXers service that not only 
helps contesters but also gives him something more to do with 
DXing and the DXing community than just working a new one.(he 
already has ALL countries worked cw and SSB). Please don't be so 
mean spirited towards a fellow contester(he is also a mainstay 
at the W3LPL M/M station) and DXer. 
Knowing which countries are active during contests,the WWV 
numbers,callsign prefix changes,and other DX information is VERY 
relevant to contesting. I am sure others on here appreciate 
being given the opportunity to subscribe to this service.       
                                      Ken Ramirez N4UK
