ARLD038 ARRL Awards Committee Statement on Dissolution of the
Netherlands Antilles

To clarify the administrative process by which the anticipated
changes to the two existing Netherlands Antilles DXCC entities will
be made, the ARRL Awards Committee has determined that at 0400Z
(12:00 AM local time in the islands) on 10 October 2010, the two
Netherland Antilles DXCC entities will be deleted.  Commencing at
0400Z (12:00 AM local time) on 10 October, 2010, operation from the
islands of Curacao, Bonaire, Sint Maarten, Saba, and St Eustatius
will count for a yet-to-be-determined number of new entities under
the DXCC List Criteria, and Political Entities, Rule 1 and/or Rule 2
Geographic Separation Entities.  When the Awards Committee
determines what Rule 1 or Rule 2 actions apply, it will announce the
final disposition of the entities on the DXCC list.  The DXCC desk
will not accept confirmations for these new entities until after 1
January, 2011.
