The County Hunters Award uses 4 Alaska Judicial Districts as counties.
(Not the U.S Census Districts or Boroughs in Alaska)

One can use the callsign lookup resources and convert Buckmaster™, RAC™ Callbook Listings, or QRZ™ internet search - Detail - US County listing of an Alaska station's 'county' or 'location' to one of the four Alaska Judicial Districts used by the County Hunters Award system. 

There is a map at the bottom of this page that graphically shows you the Judicial Districts boundaries versus the many U.S Census Districts. Zip codes don't relate either, the first 3 numbers in some areas do cross Judicial District boundaries.


Alaska First Judicial District encompasses the following listed by callbooks as counties:

Alaska Second Judicial District encompasses the following listed by callbooks as counties:

Alaska Third Judicial District encompasses the following listed by callbooks as counties:

THE FOUR JUDICIAL DISTRICTS OF ALASKA USED BY COUNTY HUNTERS AWARD.
Graphically the U.S Census Districts (often called counties by callbook references) that comprise the 4 Judicial Districts.*

AK Boroughs

A note from KL7J.
There are no counties in Alaska because the conditions for statehood by the USA under lobbying pressure from mining and salmon canning interests was no counties with their ability to tax them. The Alaskan response in order to gain statehood was not to create counties. Alaska Constitution, Article 10, Section 3 subsequently mandated the entire state be divided into boroughs. (per: Tom Stewart - AK constitutional convention chairman). If a borough organized as a local government they could have taxing ability. A confusing designation is regions. One can not use tourism or state legislative regions such as South Central, South Eastern, Far North, Interior, to define a judicial district as those regions can overlap judicial districts. More information is available in a video by PBS television on Alaska Statehood. For now the County Hunters Award uses the 4 Judicial Districts to be utilized as counties.
