<-- DXCC - DX Century Club

What makes some DXCC-Entities so important?

zoomTo confirm a succesful contact with at least 100 countries (to have "weorked them") was a major achievement in the earlier days of amateur radio. Only a happy few succeded and thus joined the exclusive "DX Century Club" of ARRL. Today the claim is much higher - and getting on top takes much more time, effort (and luck) with 338 radio countries (or rather "DXCC Entities") now on the list. Some of these entities are - or used to be - the "real hard ones" to get at. Enjoy our presentation!
