The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (aka DPRK or North Korea) was accepted into the United Nations in 1991.
In July, 1995 ARRL announced the addition of DPRK to the DXCC List. QSOs from 1995-05-14 count for this entity.
DPRK is a whitelisted DXCC entity. The following table lists stations known to have been QRV from DPRK, and which are thought to be good for DXCC credit.
The callsigns below are the only ones that Club Log will map to DPRK, and only for QSO dates within the exception date range. These callsigns have been taken from QSL cards.
Callsigns not listed below, or QSOs outside the exception date range, will be not be mapped to North Korea, but will be mapped as INVALID.
Please advise any missing DPRK callsigns, to Alan, 5B4AHJ, email address on QRZ.COM, or via the Help Desk .
