DXCC - DX Century Club

DXCC - DX Century ClubThe DXCC List is based upon the principle espoused by Clinton B. DeSoto, W1CBD, in his landmark 1935 article, "How to Count Countries Worked, A New DX Scoring System". In DeSoto's words, "The basic rule is simple and direct: Each discrete geographical or political entity is considered to be a country". This rule has stood the test of time -- from the original list published in 1937 to the ARRL DXCC List of today. For more than 60 years, the DXCC List has been the standard for DXers around the world. DeSoto never intended that all DXCC "countries" would be countries in the traditional, or dictionary, meaning of the word. Rather, they are the distinct geographic and political entities which DXers seek to contact. Individual achievement is measured by working and confirming the various entities comprising the DXCC List. This is the essence of the DXCC program. DXCC activity was interrupted by World War II. In 1947, the program started anew. Contacts are valid from November 15, 1945, the date US amateurs were authorized by the FCC to return to the air.

DXCC Criteria

DXCC CriteriaThe ARRL DXCC List is the result of progressive changes in DXing since 1945. Each entity on the DXCC List contains some definable political or geographical distinctiveness. While the general policy for qualifying entities for the DXCC List has remained the same, there has been gradual evolution in the specific details of criteria which are used to test entities for their qualifications.
- Entity: A listing on the DXCC List; a counter for DXCC awards. Previously denoted a DXCC "Country."
- Criteria: For inclusion in the DXCC List, certain conditions must be met.There are five parts to the criteria: Political Entities, Geographical Entities, Special Areas, Ineligible Areas, Removal Criteria.

ARRL - American Radio Relay League

ARRL - American Radio Relay LeagueARRL is the national membership association for Amateur Radio operators. The United States government began licensing Amateur Radio operators in 1912. By 1914, there were thousands of Amateur Radio operators--hams--in the United States. Hiram Percy Maxim, a leading Hartford, Connecticut, inventor and industrialist saw the need for an organization to band together this fledgling group of radio experimenters. In May 1914 he founded the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) to meet that need.
Today ARRL, with approximately 154,000 members, is the largest organization of radio amateurs in the United States.

Mega DX-peditions Honor Roll

Mega DX-peditions Honor RollJari, OH2BU has begun in the 90s to compile a list of all DXpeditions that have reached more than 30,000 QSOs . In the 90's 40 DXpeditions qualified. Jari has maintained this list in Excel, and we wanted to someday make it public. Later on I expanded the list, packed it in a database, and added QSLs. We now have 221 DXpeditions from 131 different DXCC entities. We keep a record of DXpedition world records, leaderboards by bands, modes and continents, operator list and much more. - Bernd DF3CB / BCC
