>From OPDX Bulletin:

DXCC NEWS. If you are not a OPDX InterNet Subscriber, you missed a special
bulletin that was sent out announcing that the DXCC Desk will be purging
9U contacts as far back as January 1, 1994, and after. The purging will
take place before March. The DXCC Desk reasoning is: "The submission of
forged documentation is a clear violation of DXCC Section 1, Basic Rule 7,
and also Rule 12 (a). Bill Moore, NC1L, from the League, says. "The list
includes the callsigns listed below and may or may not be limited to
these: 9U/F5FHI, 9U/EA1FH, 9U5W, 9U5DX, 9U5T, 9U5CW and 9U5DX. Remember,
only the contacts dated January 1, 1994, or after do not count. Some have
credits before this and these would be OK. The station 4U9U is OK."

        Since I think most if not all 160 contacts have been with the above
stations after 1/1/94, I believe this means that we will have to add 9U
back to our needed lists!

P.S.  Thanks to all for the QSO's from HC8N!  Quite a thrill and I'll write
more about it after I recover from the trip back home.
