Yo ho! Yo ho! Yo ho! Santa has a nice long N&O for ya. But first ....

A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY GOOD,
HEALTHY AND PEACEFUL 2000!
LOTS OF SUNSPOTS AND GOOD DX, GANG!

I would like to start this month's column by saying THANKS to everyone who made 1999 a very good "Numbers" year. Your contributions are much appreciated. I hope that I also may count on you in the coming year. A special thanks to Jascha and Patricia who did a great job on the logs and Chris who created the on-line numbers database.

Because this month's deadline was two weeks earlier, the amount of station info is limited. But there is still plenty to read. After two Spy Carols and the usual news you will find a short article about SORM and two articles written by Andrey Soldatov, journalist for the Russian newspaper "Segodnya". Andrey sent me the articles for inclusion in N&O. Both articles were printed in Segodnya in November and both are well worth reading. We normally only read the Western view of things, but now you can read a Russian view about the intelligence war in Chechenya and about FAPSI and SOUD. Andrey's articles were written in Cyrillic, and I am grateful that Al was kind enough to translate them for me. Andrey and Al; spasjieba!
