New Zealand Subantarctic Island
The ARRL DXCC country ZL9 – Auckland and Campbell Islands will now be called New Zealand Subantarctic Islands. This is just an administration change and “will not be a new entity or a changed entity”. This will include the Auckland and Campbell Islands as well now adding Antipodes and Bounty Islands, which up until this date had never been activated nor been included in the ARRL DXCC list. The change does not include the Snares Islands or “any islands claimed by New Zealand south of 60 degrees south latitude”. This is just “a clarification of which islands count for the entity previously known as Auckland and Campbell Is” says NN1N, Dave Patton, ARRL Membership and Volunteer Programs Manager.
