Kevin sended to the list his "Black Book" update. It was too long
so I have to cut a lot of it and send only some parts to the list.
If you are interested in to receive whole list, contact Kevin. I am
sure he will send it to you.

You can find the list from ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/dx/text/lists/BlackBook.txt

>  maintaining Black Book are frequent, rapid changes with these types of

>    A new feature has been added, "Davey Jones' Locker". This list of inactive
>  and planned stations is maintained as a reference tool and tribute to former
>  operations. 5 years was chosen as one of the criterion for determining
>  if a station should remain on "Active Status". Also, new stations that have
>  yet to broadcast are also listed here. Always make sure to check both lists!
>    The Clandestine station listings have been placed apart from the 
>  Pirate station listings. This was done to make stations easier to find and
>  if you don't have an interest in either, they can be easily edited out of
>  the list.
