I'm trying to figure out if the following two contacts count as two separate DX entity contacts towards DXCC or just one.

FO/U.S. callsign.  U.S. HAM visiting the island of Bora Bora

FO4BM on the island of Morrea.

From what I've found, prefix FO4 is for French Polynesia; however, there are a few FO4 calls for specific islands...just not the two islands I worked.

The official list of entities is on the ARRL website, under the DXCC tab.  That ought to clear it up!  :-) 

They're both fun DX regardless of entity status; Pacific stations are a little harder for us on the east coast.  (Though we have it easier into Africa.)

Both are part of French Polynesia, the same entity. It is the easiest of the FO islands to find active, but a good catch nevertheless. The others are Clipperton (a huge deal and rarely activated); Australs and Marquesas are activated somewhat regularly, usually every couple of years.
