Acceptance of this island is in accordance with point 2(a) of the criteria; see July, 1963 QST DXCC Note"

San Felix is a whitelisted DXCC entity. The following table lists stations known to have been QRV from San Felix, and which are thought to be good for DXCC credit.
The callsigns below are the only ones that Club Log will map to San Felix, and only for QSO dates within the exception date range. These callsigns have been taken from QSL cards and other sources.
Callsigns not listed below, or QSOs outside the exception date range, will be not be mapped to San Felix, but will be mapped as INVALID.
