ARLD063 DX news

The ARRL Membership Services Committee (MSC, a standing committee of the Board of Directors), having reviewed documentation from the DX Advisory Committee (DXAC) and the Awards Committee, has voted 5 to 2 to recommend the addition of Scarborough Reef to the ARRL DXCC Countries List.

The DXAC and the Awards Committee had come to opposite conclusions regarding the eligibility of Scarborough Reef for separate DXCC status. Under new procedures adopted by the ARRL Board in July, 1995, when these committees do not agree the question is referred to the MSC for review and recommendation to the full Board.

The recommendation that Scarborough Reef be added to the DXCC List will be considered by the ARRL Board of Directors at its January meeting.
