What is DXFC?
The ‘F’ in DXFC stands for ‘Feet’: countries in which you have stepped foot. This is for licensed radio amateurs who like travelling. We DXers know all about DXCC so this is just our bit of fun. It works with the same 337 current ‘entities’ as defined at http://www.arrl.org/country-lists-prefixes (not curently correct as of 9 Apr 2017).
Step foot in a DXCC entity (current at the time of the visit) to count one point, even just on the tarmac or jetty is enough. Staying on board while in transit does not count. You don’t need to pass through immigration. That’s it. No more rules! No confirmation required. There is no FAQ: answer your own questions! It’s not complicated - it’s just fun.
Register with your ham radio call-sign and claim your countries by ticking the appropriate boxes. The web-site will even count them up for you. Update whenever you like.
