DXCC ACCREDITATION CRITERIA  CHANGE ---> The  following restriction has  been
approved by  the Programs  and  Services Committee,  and  added to  the  DXCC
Accreditation Criteria, Section III:
"The presentation in  any public forum  of logs or  other representations  of
station operation showing  details of station  activity or other  information
from which all essential QSO elements  (time, date, band, mode and  callsign)
for individual contacts can be derived creates a question as to the integrity
of the claimed QSOs with that  station during the  period encompassed by  the
log. Presentation of  such information  in any  public forum  by the  station
operator,  operators  or  associated  parties  is  not  allowed  and  may  be
considered sufficient reason to deny ARRL award credit for contacts with  any
station for which such presentations have been made. Persistent violation  of
this provision  may  result  in  disqualification  from  the  DXCC  program".
