DX-Tuners is QRT

Nigel Hammond of DX-Tuners reports that, after 10 years of fine service to the radio listening community, his World Wide Web based network of remotely controlled radio receivers is no longer available.

Nigel reports that DX-Tuners will refund unused portions of subscription fees. Instructions are at

Far as I'm concerned, DX-Tuners can keep my balance. They earned it, to say the least.
