3DA - Kingdom of Eswatini/Swaziland


Inbody, Don
 

Just worked and confirmed 3DA0OAG. They refer to themselves as the Kingdom of Eswatini as does Club Log. DXkeeper calls it Swaziland, the old name. What is the correct ARRL/DXCC name for that entity?

Not a big deal, for me, just curious.

I have LotW QSLa that say this.

+ The correct name is "Eswatini". We didn't think a simple name change justified a new release of the DXCC Database.

The correct name is "Eswatini". We didn't think a simple name change justified a new release of the DXCC Database.

+ That's because the DXCC award program only cares about the entity prefix 3DA and the unique entity code 468.

+ Note that a user can immediately update his or her DXCC Databases to reflect the entity name change; see
