available at www.dxpub.net: click on "Most Wanted Survey" and you will  find
a link to the form (please note that it is not a complete list of  all  DXCC
Entities: if  you  need  something  that  is  not  listed,  simply  use  the
"Additions or Comments" space at the end of the form). 
Prefixes in bold type are ones  which  may  cause  confusion  due  to  their
similarity (e.g. 3D2, VK9, VK0, etc), plase use care when marking  these  to
be sure the correct one is counted. A few  prefixes/Entities  are  shown  in
red, to indicate either an addition to the list from last year or  a  change
in the prefix (e.g. ZK2 is now E6).
The overall results will be published in the January-February 2013 issue  of
The DX Magazine, and the world-wide results will be posted to the  web  site
