printer and confirmations were expected to start on 9 June. The operation has
been approved for DXCC credit.

TIMOR LESTE ---> Stu Greene, WA2MOE  reports that a  petition has been  filed
with the Chief Executive Officer of  ARRL "seeking removal of UNTAET  (United
Nations Transitional Administration  in East  Timor) from  the DXCC  entities
list and for the addition of  Timor Leste as an entity.  The DXCC rule  under
which 4W was added reads: 'The  entity has been assigned  a call sign  prefix
bloc by the  ITU. A provisional  prefix bloc assignment  may be  made by  the
Secretary General of ITU. Should such provisional assignments not be ratified
later by the full ITU, the  Entity will be removed from  the DXCC List'.  The
assignment was not ratified and UNTAET returned it to ITU which has  reissued
the block 4WA-4WZ to Timor Leste.  It is the position  of JA1BK and  myself",
says WA2MOE, "that the addition of 4W to the DXCC entities list was premature
and that a mistake was made".
