ARLD028 The Republic of South Sudan Is Now a DXCC Entity

DX Bulletin 28  ARLD028
>From ARRL Headquarters
Newington CT  July 14, 2011
To all radio amateurs

ARLD028 The Republic of South Sudan Is Now a DXCC Entity

At 10:18 AM (EDT) on Thursday, July 14, the UN General Assembly met
to vote on whether or not to admit the Republic of South Sudan as
its 193rd member state. The Republic of South Sudan was unanimously
admitted and is now a member of the United Nations; a two-thirds
majority is needed to become a member of the UN.

Immediately following the General Assembly meeting, the flag of the
Republic of South Sudan flew for the first time in front of the UN,
ceremoniously marking its membership in the UN.

Now that the Republic of South Sudan is a member of the United
Nations, the new country is now a DXCC entity by way of Section II,
1(a) of the DXCC rules. The DXCC Desk will begin immediately
accepting QSOs for this new entity, with a start date of July 14,

According to DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L, the Honor Roll numbers
move from 340 to 341 for the Top of the Honor Roll, and for Honor
Roll it becomes 332. "The deadline for the Honor Roll and annual
listings is December 31, so you must submit the new entity to DXCC
by then in order to retain your Honor Roll status," Moore explained.

"For Logbook of The World (LoTW), you may submit all your QSOs with
the Republic of South Sudan stations anytime. There is no need to
hold them out of your log or do anything differently from what you
already have been doing. You do not need to assign country names or
identifiers. After we issue certificates to the Republic of South
Sudan license holders, LoTW will make matches and assign the correct
entities automatically."

As of July 14, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has
not announced a prefix block for the Republic of South Sudan.
