SPECIAL EDITOR'S NOTE: WOW! Where did this year go? Anyway, my family

(wife/OPDX's chief proof-reader Linda, Teddy [TJ], Katie) and I (KB8NW)

would like to wish all DXers, Contesters and OPDX readers a very "Happy

Holiday and Season's Greetings". Also, we would like thank the many who

have contributed information over the year (there are too many to list).

REMEMBER, without them there would not be an OPDX Bulletin. I would also

thank the many who sent holiday greetings. I tried to answer some and

wished I could answer each one of them individually, but it would take

a huge amount of time. You would not believe the amount of E-mail I

receive...... 73 and Have a Great Holiday de Tedd KB8NW

P5, NORTH KOREA. The much anticipated operation which was going to take

place next week (Janaury 7th) may not happen. "The Daily DX" reported the

following this week: "The much-anticipated multi-national North Korean

operation, which was announced in mid October, which was first scheduled

for late October then early January 2001, has been scrapped. The North

Korean Organization for Army support is now refusing the use of any

transmitting equipment during the Official Opening of the Educational

center, which was scheduled to take place on January 7, 2001. Obviously

this is a disappointment to the organizers of P5UK and the DX community."
