SV2RSG/A Mount Athos News 20 September 2021 from SV1RP

Dear Dxnews I am the QSL mgr of SV2RSG/A. I read the announcement you have uploaded on your page and I want to ask you the following: Before posting anything about SV2RSG/A in the future, send me an email to confirm it. Because only from me you will have accurate and confirmed information. From nowhere else. Your site is quite valid and should only post cross-referenced information and not rumors. I do this to protect you and your audience. I hope you appreciate it.
PS. Also I do not confirm the information that at the end of the month I will go to Mt. Athos to help Monk Iakovos put antennas, because already antennas on 30 and 15m are available.
Maybe a little later.
Thank you, George, SV1RP.

SV2RSG/A Mount Athos News 9 June 2021

The QTH of SV2RSG/A experienced a strong storm and was flooded.
New QSL manager SV1RP, George, says everything was lost, including QSL cards and the transceiver. There is now no working rig there. QSL manager George does have some blank cards he had previously been sent, so if you are waiting for your card from Monk Iakovos you will need to request it again.

Due to many and important monastic obligations but also due to daily forced changes in his schedule due to covid-19, monk Iakovos (SV2RSG/A) assigns me the QSL. Please those radio amateurs who have confirmed contact with SV2RSG/A (Mount Athos) but also those who will be able to contact him in the near future, to send their QSL cards to SV1RP via QRZ.
