|Where to start with DXCC||KB2FCV||on 30/7/11|
|Using a nearby DXCC Field Checker is an excellent way to present your cards for verification. You can find the nearest Checker to you by searching the DXCC section of the ARRL web site. There is no limit as to how many cards you may submit with your initial application. However, the basic DXCC application fee of $12.00 allows for up to 120 cards. Beyond that number there is an additional charge of $0.15 per QSO. You should also begin to use the Logbook of The World as you may link your DXCC account to your LoTW logbook. Once this is done you will be able to access your DXCC records on line through LoTW. Additionally, LoTW is an excellent way to get QSO confirmations without the necessity and expense of mailing out QSL cards and waiting for the return card. And, you can file your future DXCC endorsement applications on line through LoTW.
Good luck, Mike NA9Q

|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.
