Unless I'm mistaken, and if I am I'm sure I'll quickly be corrected, FS & FJ
are currently one and the same DXCC entity, separate from FG for DXCC

For DXCC purposes, what is the current "parent" entity?  France or
Guadeloupe?  (Not that it has mattered until now since the current entity is
grandfathered in under the old pre-DXCC 2000 rules).

My question is, will this change be enough to consider one (probably FS) the
surviving DXCC entity & the other (FJ) a new DXCC entity?  Or are they too
close together (what is their distance apart?) to be considered separate
entities even after this political change?

Is there someone with vaster knowledge of DXCC than I able to answer this?

  From the reactions sofar, I conclude that FS and FJ will become separate
entities as soon as they will be listed on the U.S. Department of State's
list of "Dependencies and Areas of Special Sovereignty". Both FJ and FS
easily meet the 800km distance criterium from the parent (France).
  FS and FJ now are part of the french département d'outre-mer of Guadeloupe
(FG). Following a 2003 referendum FJ and FS will both (apart, not together)
get another political status (collectivité d'outre-mer), probably in early
2007. This is the same status as other french territories like FO, FH, FW
and FP. These four are all listed on the U.S. Department of State's list:

of this list !

    Surfing through Wikipedia I found the following:
    " Guadeloupe currently includes Saint-Barthélemy and Saint Martin, who
have voted to become separate collectivités d'outre-mer in 2003; the change
will be implemented in early 2007."
    This suggests that Saint-Barthélemy could become a new entity next year.
maybe even the current FS could be deleted, and also Saint Martin would be a
new one...
    Any comments or firm dates ?
