It took nearly 30 years, but the ARRL has finally granted DXCC credit for contacts made with the TI9CCC expedition to Cocos Island in 1984. Apparently, there were long-standing questions regarding the dates of the operation, but the ARRL Letter says the issue has finally been resolved.

Anyone who has a confirmed contact with TI9CCC between February 15 and 28, 1984, should e-mail DXCC Manager Bill Moore, NC1L, with the details in order to be placed on the list for a record update.
