    Explanation

    The DXCC programme as we know it started with an announcement in QST magazine. The announcement stated that the pre-war DXCC award programme would be terminated and a new post-war DXCC would be established. The first certificates were claimed in 1947.

    The first few months, a monthly list of all DXCC holders was published. This list quickly became too large, leading to only new additions being published, along with an "Honour Roll" of the top few stations on the list. There was an annual list of all holders well into the Fifties.

    During the late Fifties, the rules changed so that only members who had submitted cards in the past two years were included. The reason was simply that the list was becoming too big, requiring an unreasonable amount of space in QST.

    By the mid-sixties, the list had grown so much that even a two-year period generated too many callsigns. The reporting period was reduced to one year for some time. In the Seventies and Eighties, a two-year period again became standard, until 1992. At this point, annual lists reverted to a one-year period again.

    In 1993, the system changed and a separate DXCC Yearbook was first published. These Yearbooks typically contain a full list of DXCC submissions that year, along with articles of interest to DXers. Some contained DXpedition stories, others contained Most Wanted lists and opinion pieces. Several years (specifically 2004 to 2006) did not contain membership lists, after which the annual lists were resumed. The thinking was that the newly-introduced Web listings would replace the annual published lists.

    The Web listings are great in the sense that they provide an up-to-the-minute update of activity at any given moment. They show all members with their highest scores. However, they do not provide any history of how they got there.

    I personally started keeping occasional snapshots of the Web listing around 2006. However, they do not always reflect the situation at year-end, and are therefore not great for providing authorotative standings for any specific year.

    In the early years, the annual DXCC list was generally published in the December issue of QST. For this reason, submissions generally closed at the end of September. In other words: To make it into the annual list (in QST or later in the Yearbook), one had to submit cards to arrive at ARRL no later than the last day in September. Where issue dates of awards are known, the peak in applications associated with this deadline is clearly visible. More DXCC certificates were issued in September than in any other month.

    Unfortunately, as the participation increased, the time required to assemble the annual lists grew. As a result, some annual lists were delayed by up to six months. Accordingly, finding the annual list is not always easy. Doing so involves searching in up to six issues of QST. The annual list was mostly not shown in the index, so one has to page through the magazine to see where the list is. Many lists were associated with the How's DX column.

    The rules changed in 2004. This year's Yearbook was based on submissions from 2003-10 to 2004-12. All subsequent Yearbooks have covered a full calendar year.

    An individual wishing to follow the history of DXCC for a specific country will have to find all the relevant QST issues from the archives, find the annual list for each year (looking through up to six issues of that year in the process), and then pore through the small-print lists to find the stations concerned. Unfortunately, the order changed with time. In the beginning, the lists were alphabetical with digits last. Later, the Americans were placed in call areas at the end of an alphabetical list. In the computer era, sorting has been done in ASCII order (alphabetical order with digits first). Fortunately, the Web listings provide a search capability, making it much easier to find specific callsigns. Unfortunately, the DXCC Yearbook is not available in a similar format. Yearbooks still have to be searched manually.

    The list that follows is an extract of all ZS callsigns in all the annual lists. These lists most closely reflect the achievements of the early pioneers. The early scores after World War II appear mundane by today's standards. However, considering how they had to contend with AM heterodynes, noisy receivers, simple antennas and a lack of fresh operating news, their achievements deserve recognition. This list is intended to provide that perspective.

    On this Web site, there is also a consolidated list showing each station with all known information: Issue date, certificate number, highest endorsement achieved (score and year), and the operator's name. You can also find an Honour Roll list, showing all South Africans known to have entered the DXCC Honour Roll. This list includes a cumulative list showing each station's highest endorsement level and an almost-complete historical list, year by year, also extracted from listings in QST magazine.

    Each year's list starts with information reflecting where the list was published and the time interval that it covers. The heading for each list includes the scores of the leading station on that list.

    Finally, the information compiled below was harvested over a long period. Unfortunately, I did not record the world-wide high scores in the Forties. The missing scores are identified by "###". I'll plod through the crates in my garage and look them up one day. Really. Real soon now.
