VK0 Antarctica is not in my DXCC listing.

I have lots of qso's with our territory on Antarctica, but not able to link them to the correct DXCC

Any help appreciated.

It IS there, CE9, ARRL# 13.

http://www.arrl.org/files/file/dxcclist.txt

I do not think that there is a consistent callsign block for VK stations in Antarctica, so just manually select CE9 for the DXCC field after logging.

If you wanted, you could put ALL of the VK calls in Antarctica in the prefix table, then LOGic would automatically log CE9 for you when you worked one of these stations or someone spotted them.

Tnx/73,

The call sign block is mostly consistent for VK0 Antarctica. There is NO option to call for VK0-Antarctica though.

Since when is a VK0 station a CHILE station? I find this a short coming!!!

Please add VK0- Aust. Ant. Territory . I worked VK0 XXX not CE9 XXX.. My logs NEED to reflect the "correct" call sign prefix.

Australia has the largest "slice" of Antarctica as its territory.

3 stations (bases) are located there, and it SHOULD be reflected in the LOG .

Well, that's the prefix that ARRL uses for DXCC for Antarctica. See the link in my above post.

The callsign prefix is correct -- that is the call that you log it under. You can enter a comment saying what base it is, but the nationality of the station, the base that it is at, etc does not affect DXCC. The whole continent counts as ARRL #13. I don't make the rules. :-)
