OPDX Bulletin Nr. 1000, edited by Tedd KB8NW and hosted on my
website www.papays.com/opdx.html, is reporting some good news regarding VUCC
and DXCC fees etc.:

"DXCC NEWS (Awards Processing Update). The ARRL Awards-Blog page reports
the following: "We are nearly done with processing all the 2010 DXCC
applications. At this point we are reconciling hybrid applications and
determining final disposition of applications with problems. It will
take us about one more week to finish these tasks, at which time we will
shut down the DXCC system so that the data for 2010 (Annual Listings and
Honor Roll listings) can be tabulated.
   After we have the 2010 data, we will work with IT staff to incorporate
the newest DXCC entities into LoTW and call for LoTW certificate requests
from the PJ operations.
   VUCC paper applications from 2010 and the first few weeks of 2011 have
been entered into the VUCC system, but not processed further. Those who
submitted those applications, and have accounts in LoTW, can see that
data inside their accounts. Link requests for VUCC have been processed
where it was possible without manual intervention. There are approximately
60 link requests that will require further work at HQ.
   DXCC and VUCC fees are being evaluated.  If the fees are changed (they
will not be raised), the new rates will be applied to any applications
received in 2011."
