    Did something happen to withdraw this operation from DXCC credit? I noticed it was deleted from my LoTW account. It was back in 2013, I believe.

    ZM90DX was a special event call sign for New Zealand.

    It wasn't Auckland and Campbell at any time I'm aware of.

    It has never been Auckland and Campbell, but a lot of logging programs automatically assign the QSO as such. You have to change the country manually.

    Hi-ho...

    Sorry for the confusion. We had the cities database used by a lot of cluster sites updated before the event call was QRV but unfortunately it took months for the update to hit the websites, leading to lots of confusion and disappointment for some OPs. One cluster site was still showing it as Auckland and Campbell right up to the last day we were on air, over a year after we contacted the operators of the site and asked them to fix it.

    If you're curious as to what it was all about you can read about it on the website: http://zm90dx.com under the history tab..

    Thanks, Chris. The log search shows I worked you guys on 10, 12 and 15 CW and 10 phone. Always a big signal.
