Author Topic: Question about DXCC totals for Honor Roll  (Read 1105 times)

I believe one needs to be within 9 countries of the total current number to qualify for Honor Roll.  Under our current DXCC list that would mean 331 entities would qualify.

Does that include or exclude deleted countries?  I currently have 314 current entities worked but I have about 6 or 7 deleted confirmed. Do those deleted entities count towards the total required for HR?

I can't recall who brought it up but the other day I thought somebody was including deleted countries in their total.  Some clarification would be very much appreciated.

Hi Chris,

I got the following from ARRL.

i) Mixed: To qualify, you must have a total confirmed entity count that places you among the numerical top ten DXCC entities total on the current DXCC List (example: if there are 340 current DXCC entities, you must have at least 331 entities confirmed). Deleted entities do not count towards the DXCC Honor Roll.

Chris,
Minimum required as of today for HR is 331 (exclusive of deleted entities), as Jonathan said.  Deleted entities are counted in the mixed DXCC listings: http://www.arrl.org/system/dxcc/view/DXCC-MIXED-20121105-USLetter.pdf

Note that the top total on the mixed listing is 398 entities, and that there is one station with 386 entities who is not on the HR.

The honor roll listing is found at: http://www.arrl.org/system/dxcc/view/DXCC-HR-20121105-USLetter.pdf

The thing I find striking about this listing is that roughly one third of the stations on the mixed honor roll are at the very top, with all 340 entities confirmed.

The "fun" part is where you get within 5 of HR and they delete one (that you have) and add 5 new entities.

Sort of like that movie:

"The Longest Yard" . . . .

It always seems one I have gets deleted. I need some I don't have to get deleted.  Grin

The only one I have needed that DID get deleted was R1MV. So that was nice. But I am still 22 away from Honor Roll.
