SATCO DX week 12

Welcome to the first mail in SATCO DX Mailing list!

This mailing list is supposed to give you regular and brief info about
recent important updates at SATCO DX. I plan to send regular mails (almost)
every Sunday night, with extra mails whenever there are major updates, like
new satellites or new features.

If you want to get (almost) daily and more detailed info about the updates,
you could be part of the "SATCO DX Internal list", open only for
contributors to SATCO DX. Please read more at SATCO DX about how to do this.
