"This file is a 'FileMaker Pro 4.0 Runtime Database'. It will probably be over 300KB. Rename the file with your callsign, for example, G3NUG.DEC and tell us whether you are using Ver1 or Ver3 of the SM6DEC program. Please be sure to complete the application form with the calls of the two amateurs that have checked your log."

QSL 5R8FL ---> There was a mistyping in 425DXN #506: John, SM5DJZ is the QSL manager for 5R8FU, *not* for 5R8FL. According to our sources, cards for 5R8FL should be addressed to P.O. Box 5005, Tananarive, Madagascar.

QSL VU2HFR ---> Horey, the QSL manager for all of the operators who were active from Sagar Island last week, reminds DXers not to send green stamps (2 IRCs are all right). His address is: Nilanjan Majumdar, 9 Mandeville Gardens, Apt 5F, P.O. Ballygunge, Calcutta 700 019, India. Those who are concerned about the IOTA status of this operation can relax, as Horey is in touch with the IOTA Manager and expects to send the validation material as soon as possible.

+ SILENT KEY + Harry L. Booth, Z26JP has been a Silent Key since 16 June 2000 and his daughter asks DXers not to send QSL cards any longer. [TNX DL2KUW] -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
