FK8CJ – New Caledonia – both a DXCC and IOTA counter
There are many locations that are both DXCC and IOTA counters. Some, like Vancouver Island – are Canada and an IOTA counter. With something like that, I would use the IOTA number as a counter – especially since I already had VE7 for Canada. In this case – its an either or situation – but not both. Since there are other islands near New Caledonia that have their own IOTA number, I will use the DXCC counter for this one.
This FREQ 300 idea just gets more interesting and more fun as it unfolds – I hadn’t given it much thought as far as when there is an entity that can be used as a DXCC or IOTA entity – so the rule is – for that entity you have to choose one or the other. In other words I can’t have 2 QSO’s with New Caledonia and call it 2 counters, one for DXCC and one for IOTA. However, any surrounding islands that have their own IOTA numbers cn be used as a separate counter.
