Hi Bill,
 
Sicily is not a DXCC entity.  It only counts as a mult in certain CW contests.

IT9 should come up as Italy because Sicily is not one of the 340 DXCC Entities.

Sardinia, which is another Italian island, does count as a DXCC Entity.  It's prefix is IS0.

It's weird.  You are right, ARRL doesn't count Sicily as a separate identity, but CQ Magazine does for their awards. Unless they changed without saying anything.

It (IT) comes from the Worked All Europe Multiplier List.  There are a small handful of deviations on this list that are not on the DXCC list.  CQWW is the most notable contest to also include it in the country multipliers (Along with DXCC).  The same applies to the IGx and IRx which are Italy on DXCC, but also separate multipliers on the Europe Multiplier List.

Just depends upon whose scorecard you are using.

I believe it's always been that way. Ditto for Shetland Islands (not SOUTH Shetland, VP8). For DXCC and ARRL DX it's treated as any other Scotland (GM) station.

I wish they would consider Scarborough Reef the same as China! ☺

CQ adds the “WAE” entities for awards and mults during contests.  From the current contest rules:
 
DXCC plus WAE countries: WAE: GM/Shetland (Shetland Islands), IG9/IH9 (African Italy – Lampedusa and Pantelleria Islands), IT, JW (Bear Island), TA1 (European Turkey), 4U1VIC (Vienna International Center), Z6 (Kosovo).

I once took a ferry ride from Calabria (Southern Italy) to Sicily.  I doubt the trip was longer than an hour.  Sicily likely doesn't meet the distance rule for an island whereas Sardinia does.

Yes,  I'm aware that Sicily does count as a country for non-ARRL awards and in some contests such as Worked All Europe.
