12:00Z — APRIL FOOL CONFIRMED 😉

DX-World has today learned that a major overhaul within ARRL DXCC (DXAC) is being planned. Details are still to be formally announced, but we can exclusively reveal the following:

  •  ARRL is considering adding “Moon” as a new DXCC entity when the next astronauts land there.
  •  Apparently ARRL will soon delete all DXCC countries where there has been no radio activity since 1st January 2000.
  • In addition, but not yet confirmed, FT8 QSOs will now only count for Digital DXCC, and not Mixed DXCC. 

Keep an eye on the ARRL website or DX-World for further updates.
