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).

You will need to create an account in order to enter your score. Do this by clicking on the Login panel to the right. ALWAYS USE YOUR CALLSIGN TO REGISTER! Once that's done you can enter your DXFC score by clicking on 'Update My DXFC' in the menu above.

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.

Veni, Vidi, QRV!
There is also a column to score points for being QRV in each entity: preferably a proper operation, but we each have our own rules for this.

Articles and Soapbox
Upload stories, articles and your own blog. Describe your latest contest trips too. Other DXFC'ers are waiting to hear how you got on, what you did, etc.
