E03

The idents were compiled by Alpha Vax this month and I hope that he will be doing this for a long time. Alpha is Al's successor. Al has compiled the idents during the past couple of years. He wrote me a note in January in which he says

"For quite some years I've monitored E03 and published the IDs on the list. I think it's time now to retire from this work, having found a qualified successor in Alpa Vax".

Thanks for everything that you did for Spooks and N&O, Al. It is greatly appreciated. I wish you all the best. Keep in touch!!!
