! DXCC 2000 ! Excerpt from the ARRL Bulletin #8:
The DXCC Board approved some rule changes to the DXCC program. "...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 poli- tical 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. ... 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 effective date of the changes will be announced later this year."
