Bye bye Beaconworld

The Beaconworld website will be closing down in May. If you’ve never heard of it before, neither had I until I read about it in M0XPD’s blog. But having visited the site, it seems to be an excellent and comprehensive resource for anyone interested in beacon DXing. It’s a shame that it will disappear even though it is being closed for reasons that I can understand.

Have a look while it’s still here. Perhaps someone will step in and offer to take over the site and carry it on, or at least to preserve the pages as they are.
