Current DXCC entity to Diamond DXCC (DDXCC) Country Cross Reference(last update 2012/3/3)
Diamond DXCC (DDXCC) Program started in beginning of 2012.
It would be interesting game.
However, it is not easy to find out which current DXCC entity corresponds to DDXCC country, as there were so much political changes in the world since 1937.
Working DXs is not so difficult, but filling DDXCC form is not so easy.
ARRL provided DDXCC country list with some references to
current entities, but this does not cover all of current entities.
I tried to complete current DXCC entity list to reflect DDXCC county list, and I want to share what I did.
Note that this is only my private work, not ARRL official
list. This may include some errors or misunderstandings.
I still have some open questions which I could not find good solution. I think DDXCC has a lot of missing pieces, or misunderstandings of the world. I do not think it covers comprehensive whole world.
Anyway, I open my list to public, and I appreciate your feedback to make the list complete. I also want to contact ARRL to solve some questions.
Here is the link to the list (Microsoft Excel .xls format) v.03 dated on 2012/3/3
This is the list of current DXCC entity corresponding to DDXCC country
Current DXCC entity prefix indicated in Italic represents DDXCC county which is not included in current DXCC entity list, such as some Moroccan countries, some Malayan countries. You may need detailed information to recognize such old DDXCC country. Refer ARRL DDXCC country list for further (geographic) information.
DDXCC country name indicated in Italic represent current DXCC entities which is not included ARRL's DDXCC country list, and I filled DDXCC country name according to my knowledge. Some would be correct, some would not be. Note that this is my private work and not ARRL's official announcement. I will try to finalize these countries to be official as much as possible.
There are several open questions. Some current DXCC entities shall be separate DDXCC countries, considering political and geographic situations, though they are not included DDXCC country list, such as Nauru, Sao Tome and Princepe, etc. Some situations, such as Kuwait, UAE, Bouvet, Peter I, etc., are not clear and they shall be consulted by ARRL.
This is just for your reference to ease your DDXCC activities. This is not official ARRL DDXCC country list.
