DXCC - DX Century Club

DXCC - DX Century Club

  • The DX Century Club Award is available to Amateur Radio operators throughout the world. There are 18 separate DXCC awards available, plus the DXCC Honor Roll.
  • The Five-Band DXCC (5BDXCC) certificate is available for working and confirming 100 current DXCC entities on each of five bands.
  • DXCC Challenge Award is given for working and confirming at least 1,000 DXCC band-Entities on any Amateur bands. A DeSoto Cup is presented to the DXCC Challenge leader as of the 31st of December each year.
  • To qualify for the Honor Roll you must have a total confirmed entity count that places you among the numerical top ten DXCC entities total on the current DXCC List (example: if there are 338 current DXCC entities, you must have at least 329 entities confirmed).
  • To qualify for the #1 Honor Roll you must have worked every entity on the current DXCC List.
  • Over time, the criteria for the List has changed. However, entities are not removed when changes are made. The List remains unchanged until an entity no longer satisfies the criteria under which it was added. Thus, today's DXCC List does not fully conform with today's criteria.

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.

- 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
