ENTITY NAME CHANGE IN DXCC.  There is an administrative change only.
In the ARRL DXCC List, the name for the entity for ZL9 will be
changed from Auckland and Campbell Islands to New Zealand
Subantarctic Islands.  This does not include the Snares or any
islands claimed by New Zealand south of 60 degrees south latitude.

Specifically, the Antipodes of New Zealand and the Bounty Islands of
New Zealand will count for ZL9, New Zealand Subantarctic Islands
entity.

This is not a new entity or a changed entity.  It is a clarification
of which islands count for the entity previously known as Auckland
and Campbell Islands.
