Information from Bernie, W3UR Editor of Daily DX: The SV2ASP/A callsign was pirated.
DL5EBE reports that Apollo underwent major surgery last month and was hospitalized again all of last week. While he was laid up a phony was on 20 CW using his callsign. SV1DPI, Kostas, also confirms this news and in addition reports Monk Apollo is now back in Mount Athos. October 16-18 was a pirate. (W3UR note: Most likely the October 22 and 23 operations were also bogus).
“Kostas, SV1DPI informs: “Monk Apollo had some medical tests about one month ago and doctors told him that they need to make a surgery on his head. He made it at 21 September. He went out of hospital after a week at 28 September. He was in Sohos monastery (outside Mount Athos) until Tuesday (4 October) when he visited doctors again. Normally he is back in Mount Athos right now. I talked him before he went to doctors on Tuesday – he told me that he was expected to go back in Athos the next day. He’s in very good health, very optimistic (he was working when I talked with him on last Monday) and I hope ready for new QSOs soon!”
