he implies OIRT is basically dead, his loss, just makes our logs look more exotic if most people aren't looking down there right? ;-)

To be fair he does state "many countries are deserting the OIRT band and it will gradually fall into disuse in coming years".

To be unfair he uses a Sony 920 with an indoor antenna and does not mention the XDR - not a serious dxer...
