SOUTH  SUDAN  DXCC  STATUS  --->  By  Martti  Laine,  OH2BH:    "With  great
anticipation, DXers the world over are looking forward to the  9th  of  July
this  year  as  the  predicted  day  of  South    Sudan's    declaration  of
independence. Indeed, that declaration is set to happen,  but  it  will  not
yet guarantee the birth of a new DXCC entity, at least  at  that  time.  The
DXCC rules are written in such a way that only a  new  country's  membership
in the United Nations and/or its ITU  country  prefix  will  result  in  the
anticipated DXCC counter. The U.S. State  Department  Geographer's  list  of
Dependencies and Areas of Special Sovereignty obviously does  not  apply  in
this case.
The opinion from the ARRL is that no exceptions will be made in  this  case.
They state that the event date - i.e. declaration  of  independence  -  will
not cause potential QSOs to  be  counted  retroactively.  Rather,  Newington
categorically assumes that U.N. membership,  which  will  most  likely  come
first,  followed  by  the  release  of  an    ITU    prefix    by  the  U.N.
telecommunications agency, will lead to country status.
The prospect of a new country has taken an unexpected  turn  just  recently.
The country's borderline has never been  settled  between  North  and  South
Sudan in the area (Abyei) where most of the oil  reserves  are  located.  It
was agreed under the 2005 Peace Agreement that  the  border  issue  will  be
resolved by the people in that province. A referendum to settle  the  matter
has not  happened.  Instead,  the  North  (ST2)  has  entered  the  disputed
province with force. Additionally, the North has stated that they  will  not
support an independent State in the south unless  the  contested  region  is
theirs.    The    matter      now        remains        totally    in  limbo
While the amateur radio  project  announced  earlier  this  year  by  5Z4DZ,
ST2AR, W3UR and OH2BH is well underway, it is not yet  reasonable  to  swing
your antennas  toward  South  Sudan,  as  we  speak.  The  project  has  two
well-known  DXers  now  permanently  based  in  South  Sudan:    SM7PKK  and
YI1DZ/ST2DZ. The knowledge and the professional presence  are  in  place  to
proceed with an immediate activation as soon as  the  above  country  status
matters are resolved. More news to follow". [TNX OH2BN]
