ARRL eQSL Policy KB1XI on 29/4/16
It looks like 66% don't agree with the present ARRL policy on DXCC. The whole program needs to be looked at.

AI4BJ stated that "I'm not too familiar with e-QSL" . He should take a few mins to get familiar with the e-QSL awards program and he might see what it is all about. I have the following DXCC awards:

DXCC HONOR ROLL 339/349
DXCC MIXED
DXCC PHONE 340
DXCC CW 288
DXCC RTTY (DIGI) 146
DXCC 80 METERS 112
DXCC 40 METERS 142
DXCC 20 METERS 150
DXCC 15 METERS116
DXCC 10 METERS 259
5 BAND DXCC #2225 JAN 29 1987

e-QSL AWARDS:

eDX100
eCANADA
eWAS
ePFX300 601

Check out my station awards display on QRZ.COM. Both of these awards programs are good and you have to "earn" the wood and paper. I've been doing this for the last fifty - seven, 57 years. See you in the pileups.

Use e-Qsl for ARRL awards. Waaay back when... you were going to use them, BUT when you saw that you could make a buck.. you changed your mind.

Does anyone have any info on this Spratly Islands operation ?

Operation was on 08 May 1990 20m CW & SSB.

RTTY DXCC ? W5CPT on 9/8/11
We tried years ago to change the name of "RTTY DXCC AWARD". But the ARRL said all the new digital modes were under RTTY ! They weren't RTTY. Now it looks like all the oldtimers have gone QRT. So the easiest way is to put ALL (except CW) digital modes under the same award, and name it "DIGITAL" Thanks ARRL for waking up after all these years. I've been a ham for 52 years and have the following DXCC awards.. mixed, phone, cw, 10 meter, 80 meter, 40 meter, 20 meter, 15 meter, rtty, and 5 band. Its been a lot of fun, but why should I call PKT or PSK31 RTTY ? Remember when an invading army counted as the country they were invading ? Again, chasing DX is fun. My modest totals are 340/349.
Have fun.... Ralph K1KOB
