The "attack" by the pirate at 160 m / FT8 was made from Athens and lasted about half an hour. We understood this illigal activity at the same time. We apologize to all the radio amateurs because we could not protect them. Please be informed about the validation of your CONTACT with the monk Iakovos, from the clublog or from the QSL MANAGER of SV2RSG / A George SV1RP

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.
