    Ah, now I see what you mean... not your fault! Didn't occur to me that it would have Antarctica as a COUNTRY and not a CONTINENT. It is definitely not a country!

    Makes no sense to count Antarctica as a country and not a continent. :confused:

    QRZ: can we change this?

    QRZ is likely following/using the DXCC list, where Antarctica is an entity. The ARRL changed the terminology some time ago. What used to be called a DXCC country, is now an entity. A political country can have many DXCC entities. Think Hawaii and Alaska, two US states that count as separate DXCC entities.
