Re: Kosovo is now a DXCC entity

Hi all,


Dave, Michael G7VJR posted this out to Clublog earlier today:


I must stress this is provisional - it's possible ARRL will announce a different ADIF number or a start time further in the past, for example. However, based on all the info I have from Martti OH2BH (and clear evidence that the REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO is in the DXCC Challenge lists on LoTW now), I've added this new one to Club Log. 
Here is the technical info, which will appear in cty.xml. 
CQZ: 15
ADIF entity: 522
Start date: 2018-01-22 00:00:00
Not sure how much it will help, but it may be of use....

Subject: [dxlab] Kosovo is now a DXCC entity

Last weekend, the ARRL Board of Directors approved a change to the DXCC rules that makes the Republic of Kosovo a DXCC entity. As
soon as the ARRL announces the "DXCC entity code" for Kosovo, a DXCC Database update will be issued.

Until then, continue to log QSOs with stations in Kosovo by specifying a DXCC Entity of Serbia and a Region of Kosovo, as described

When the ARRL announces the "start date" for the Republic of Kosovo, I will provide a script that converts logged QSOs with a DXCC
Entity of Serbia and a Region of Kosovo that are within the valid date range to a DXCC Entity of Kosovo.

I will also extend DXKeeper's award tracking/reporting for CQ and DARC awards to appropriately count QSOs with a DXCC Entity of
