    Curious - if you had worked a station in Swaziland with the prefix 3DA0 a decade ago, but now the county is called Kingdom of Eswatini, does that mean you have BOTH Swaziland AND Kingdom of Eswatini in your log? Or would you have to work Kingdom of Eswatini as well, even though the prefix is the same, in order to claim both?

    Asking for a friend. No, I really am, actually!!

    Same country, no difference, e.g., Burma -Myanmar

    I went from British Honduras to Belize and there was quite a pile up in the first couple years in the 1980s looking for V31's

    If I scratch my head long enough I'm sure I can come up with some exceptions. Eastern Europe has some candidates.

    Normally both will count as a country/ that's why some of us Old-Timers have so many countries/ because they changed names and territories and call signs.

    Wait - so my friend would have BOTH Swaziland AND Kingdom of Eswatini? I.e., two DX entities?

    That doesn't sound like what's posted above.

    Can you clarify?

    I know when I was operating in British Honduras and it changed to Belize many people worked me the second time for a second country/ of course British Honduras no longer existed. The new country was V31.
    I probably have at least 70 countries like that I worked over the years.

    In that case I don't think so.

    Are you sure about that? British Honduras isn't on the deleted country list. (only 62 at the time)
