ARLD031 Swain's Island, KH8, added to ARRL DXCC List

With the addition of Section II, Criteria Rule 1c) to the Political
Entity criteria, certain former separation entities may now qualify
as Political Entities. One such entity has been determined to be
American Samoa. American Samoa is now a Political Entity for DXCC
purposes.

As a result of the reclassification of American Samoa, and upon the
filing of a request and substantiating evidence, and with the
concurrence of the DXAC and the Awards Committee, Swain's Island has
been added to the DXCC List.

Swain's Island, entity number 337, qualifies as the first separation
entity from American Samoa, now a Political Entity. The distance
between American Samoa and Swain's Island has been determined to be
in excess of 350 km as required by DXCC Rules Section II, Paragraph
2, Section b). QSOs made with Swain's Island on or after 0001z, July
22, 2006 will count for DXCC credit. The prefix is KH8.

For additional information, including the DXCC Reference Number for
Swain's Island, contact Bill Moore at the DXCC Desk at
