It would also be interesting to find out how the CQ country list will be
effected by this ?  They use a separate country list from the ARRL for the
CQWW DX contest.



W4TV has an error in his comments  - "  Since the distance between islands
is less than 800 km, the entire group should become a single "Island Group"
until the various islands are added to the

Department of State list."   


This is false - Bonaire is slightly more than 800 km from Saba and St.
Eustatius so it meets the distance requirement to be a separate county from
those two islands.

The odds are very good that Bonaire will become a new country  on the ARRL
DX country list because beginning 10-10-10 it meets all the criteria for a
new country on the DXCC list . Read this and you will understand why -

Am I to infer from your email that Bonaire will become a new DXCC Entity?  I
have searched through the two references that you have given, but do not
find any reference to that.


What am I missing?
