On 14 July the UN General Assembly admitted the Republic of South  Sudan  as
the 193rd member of the United Nations.
Consequently, South Sudan has been added to the DXCC List as  a  new  Entity
(the 341st on the  "current"  list,  thus  moving  the  Honor Roll threshold
to 332), by way of Section II, 1(a) of  the DXCC Rules. The DXCC entity code
assigned to Republic of South Sudan is 521. This is a totally new Entity for
all  DXers  (i.e.  the  deleted  Entity  of Southern Sudan, ST0 has NOT been
reinstated, as  per  DXCC  Rules), and  the DXCC Desk will begin immediately
accepting  QSOs  for it, with a start date of July 14, 2011.
"The deadline for the Honor Roll and annual listings is December 31, so  you
must submit the new entity  to DXCC by  then in order  to retain your  Honor
Roll status," Bill Moore, NC1L  explained. "For Logbook of The World (LoTW),
you  may  submit all your QSOs  with  the  Republic of  South Sudan stations
anytime.  There is  no  need to hold  them out  of your  log or do  anything
differently from what you  already  have been  doing.  You  do  not  need to
assign  country  names or identifiers.  After we issue  certificates  to the
Republic  of  South  Sudan  license holders,  LoTW  will  make  matches  and
assign the correct entities automatically."
The Republic of South Sudan is also the newest addition to the CQ  DX  Award
Countries List (it is #342, as  CQ  counts Kosova). Verifications confirming
contacts  after July 14, 2011 are acceptable for  credit. No award credit is
available  for  southern  Sudan  contacts made during the 1980s and 90s. The
new  addition  will  be reflected in  CQ DX Honor Roll totals to be compiled
near the  end  of  September. South Sudan  will count as a country  (entity)
multiplier for the CQ DX Marathon, the  CQ  World  Wide  DX  Contest and any
other CQ contests that use country multipliers.
As of 14 July, the  International  Telecommunication  Union  (ITU)  has  not
announced a prefix block for the Republic of South Sudan.

SOUTH SUDAN ---> In their latest press release (14 July) the DX Friends  and
The  Intrepid-DX  Group  (www.dxfriends.com/SouthernSudan2011/)  state  they
"continue to move forward with their plans to activate this new entity  with
a multi-national DXpedition team.  With our  visas in hand,  the teams  will
soon  be  making their  way  towards Africa and ultimately  to Juba, the new
capital of this new nation. We will have five active stations, operating  24
hrs a day.
We will be in regular contact with our US, EU and JA Pilot  Stations and  we
will  pay close  attention to propagation reports from them. We ask that you
please make contact with the pilot stations only during  the DXpedition  and
to please refrain from contacting  the team  members directly  via email. We
will announce our call sign once we are in Juba and ready to become active".
On 15  July  MM0NDX (EU Pilot  for  the DXpedition)  released the  following
"The Intrepid DX Group is meeting the DX Friends in  Cairo on July 21st.  On
July 22nd, they all fly from Cairo to Juba, South Sudan. On July 23rd,  they
will meet with the Ministry of Communications to  amend licenses to the  new
ITU prefix. They expect to be active later on July 23rd, or July 24th  until
shut down on August 10th, 2011".
