DXCC AWARDS PAGE
The DX Century Club (DXCC) is the premier operating award in all of Amateur Radio. The basic certificate is awarded for working and confirming at least 100 entities on the ARRL DXCC List.
1. To show the DXCC status of SDXA members in good standing, the chart at the link below lists the main counts. For simplicity, it does not cover all the individual bands or mode versions that you can get. The totals come from the official ARRL DXCC web pages and not the members.

2. There are 340 entities (formerly called countries) on the current list.
3. An operator who works 100 is eligible for DXCC membership.
4. An operator who works at least 331 is eligible for the HONOR ROLL.
5. An operator who works ALL 340 is eligible for the NR 1 HONOR ROLL.
6. There are 60 entities on the deleted list. These are entities which no longer exist. We once had East and West Germany, now only one. Other entities which once existed include Zanzibar, French Indo-China, British Somaliland, Tanganyika, Tibet, etc. You had to be on the air and have worked them then in order to claim credit. The list is available from the ARRL.
