Has anyone heard whether a prefix has been assigned yet? Any rumors of an expedition yet? JACK W1WEF

Hello Jack,
The ITU will eventually allocate a call sign series, either a new one or one of those currently allocated to Sudan: 6TA-6TZ 6UA-6UZ
SSN-SSZ and STA-STZ. Note that SSN-SSZ is a rare "half series" (SSA-SSM is allocated to Egypt). This is not treated as urgently as the telephone country code which has already been allocated. 73, Dave K1ZZ

The dxped is ON the air. The country code represents reveune so that was urgent and is a first order of business. Not many folks, except amateurs, really care much about the call sign prefix series but it will come in due time.

Actually Larry, I think call sign prefixes are important to many people and organizations, such as radio and television broadcasters, aircraft owners, ship owners, and others.

Nice to see you here, and a very warm congratulations regarding Minute # 41 of the recent BoD meeting.

Notwithstanding the DXCC criteria regarding deleted and new entities, can anyone explain the distinction between the old ST0 and this one?
My understanding is the locations are precisely the same.

I believe the distinction lies in the fact that the old ST0 was a semi- autonomous region of Sudan while the new ST0 is a totally independent entity. Also, I believe, I read somewhere that the new border is not precisely the same as the old one, some differences exist.
