ARLD005 New DXCC Entity Added

The International Telecommunication Union, in its Operational
Bulletin No. 685 of February 1, 1999, has allocated the callsign
prefix E4 for use by Palestine. This is in accordance with the
Resolution PLEN/3 of the Plenipotentiary Conference of the ITU held
in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1998.

Under the current DXCC List Criteria, Section 1, this callsign
allocation meets the requirement of paragraph b.

Palestine will be added to the DXCC List effective October 1, 1999.
Contacts made with E4 stations after February 1, 1999, will count
for this new entity.

Under the DXCC rules, contacts with the deleted entity of Palestine
made prior to June 30, 1968 do not count for this entity. There is
no commonality of territory or administration.
