                 <<< RULES CHANGES FOR THE DXCC PROGRAM >>>
                     Excerpt from  the ARRL Bulletin #8

"Approved by the Board were rules changes for the DXCC program that had  been
recommended by the DXCC 2000 Committee. Under the new criteria, no  countries
currently on the DXCC list will be removed.  In the future, countries will be
referred to as entities.  A political entity  will be added to the DXCC  list
if it meets any one of three criteria: it is a UN member state, it has an ITU
prefix block assigned, or  it has a  separate IARU member  society.  The  new
criteria also replace  all DXCC measurements,  including physical  separation
distances, with  metric  system figures  roughly  equivalent  to  the  former
distances. While the  57 entities on  the deleted  list will  remain, no  new
countries will be added to the deleted list in the future.  Deleted  entities
simply will be removed. In addition, the new rules specify a minimum 'island'
size of 100  meters measured in  a straight line.   The  DXCC field  checking
program will remain  in place.   The effective date  of the  changes will  be
announced later this year.  The  DXCC 2000 Committee was discharged with  the
Board's thanks."
