DXCC RULES TO BE REVIEWED! From the "Minutes of 2013 Second Meeting -
ARRL Board of Directors - dated July 19-20th, 2013" Item 35:
  "On motion of Mr. Fenstermaker, seconded by Mr. Vallio, the following
resolution was ADOPTED:
  WHEREAS: The ARRL's DXCC program is very successful and is recognized
as the premier DX award available to Radio Amateurs. It has been at least
10 years since the DXCC rules were comprehensively reviewed by the DX
Advisory Committee (DXAC) and/or another committee and ratified by the
ARRL Board of Directors. These changes to DXCC have been very successful
and resolved many previous problems and inconsistencies in the DXCC rules
and program; and,
  WHEREAS during this time, changing international conditions and situ-
ations now warrant review of these rules to insure the DXCC rules acknow-
ledge such changes and events.
  NOW BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED that the ARRL Board of Directors tasks the
Program and Services Committee to request the DX Advisory Committee (DXAC)
study and, if warranted, recommend changes to the DXCC Rules for the ARRL
Board of Directors to discuss.
  A status report shall be forwarded to the Programs and Services Committee
prior to the January 2014 Board Meeting with a final report and recommen-
dations forwarded to the Programs and Services Committee prior to the July
2014 Board Meeting."

Ralph, K0IR, updated the Web page this past week with details (as well
as pictures) of the landing and operating sites for the FT5ZM DXpedition
on Amsterdam Island. He states, "We have been assigned two operating sites
on the north end of the island. One site, a shelter called Mataf, is
located just northeast of the base. It is over 400 feet from the sea and
the beach area has small cliffs, is rugged and rocky, and is exposed to
the high sea. Having antennas at the water's edge is not really an option.
The slope downward and to the north favors propagation to most major
population areas. We will use verticals for the low bands and 3-element
Yagis for the high bands." Check out the complete press release (with
