ARLD063 DX news
The ARRL Membership Services Committee (MSC, a standing committee of
the Board of Directors), having reviewed documentation from the DX
Advisory Committee (DXAC) and the Awards Committee, has voted 5 to 2
to recommend the addition of Scarborough Reef to the ARRL DXCC
The DXAC and the Awards Committee had come to opposite conclusions
regarding the eligibility of Scarborough Reef for separate DXCC
status. Under new procedures adopted by the ARRL Board in July,
1995, when these committees do not agree the question is referred to
the MSC for review and recommendation to the full Board.
The recommendation that Scarborough Reef be added to the DXCC List
will be considered by the ARRL Board of Directors at its January
With this announcement and the January BOD approval, today's most challenging DX location was added to the DXCC list. Only 3 expeditions have taken place and many DXers crave only 1 counter to have worked them all. THIS IS THAT ENTITY.
Below is a map of the Reef showing the rocks on the bottom that are suitable for radio operations.
