What makes a country?
You can’t be a Real Country unless you have A BEER and an airline – it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a BEER.
Frank Zappa (1940-93), US rock musician
Well for DXCC it is a bit more complicated that Zappa’s Beer Test!
It actually gets complicated enough that you need a reference sheet or website to just keep score!

The goal of the creation of this service was the gathering in one place and in the equal form basic data about all DXCC Entities.
Surely it is proper to find out something about the country of the correspondent or about the rare DX country, wherewith you just made the contact.
I supposed besides that from this service will enjoy also persons not being radio amateurs, either radio amateurs barely beginning the adventure of its life. Just for them intended is this part of the service which permits to seek the information according to geographical units. It is the first step in polished manners with the world parted into DXCC Entities. At every geographical unit show itself links to entities DXCC, which compose it.
A separate profile of the service are maps. They represent DXCC entities, countries or parts of geographical units (islands, administrative units etc.).
Classical maps always fascinated me, therefore are them here not a little. And will be increasingly. As that the progress will be not possible to avoid and to defend before him is meaninglessly – the part of maps is in the present form and the graphic stylistics.
I wish satisfactions at using this service.
Well done Darek!
