Re: Reefs?

"Sea level" is sort of "sea level" world-wide.  The Pacific is about 40 cm higher than the Atlantic [and the north of both is a few cm higher than the south of both], so covering a coral rock that was about a meter or so above low tide would require a significant sea level rise to cover it.  Whether or not Rock #3 at BS7H should be a deleted entity I leave to more educated DXCC folk.

Water can simply rise, or the constant wave action with little substrate will wash it away…

I wasn't asking if it should or should not have been allowed ... I just wondered if it was now submerged below low tide or not.  From the photo I have, if it is underwater at low tide now, the sea level has risen way more than the data that have been recently published.

It Should never have been allowed.  There needs to be a land mass area criteria added.  BS7 was all BS politics.

Does anyone actually know that the rock that held the scaffold in the photo I have of W6RGG working the world at BS7H ["Rock #3?"] is *really* underwater now?  It looks like it's maybe a meter above the water in the photo.  Tides aren't large in the S. China Sea and I didn't think the MSL rise since then has been that much.  I tried Google Earth but there are so many reefs and very shallow spots in that region, I couldn't tell, and of course GE may be an old photo.  Just curious.

My concern with BS7 is the possibility it may never be on their air again if it remains underwater. 

Guess I will have to wait and see.

Makes me wonder if I can will my contacts to a relative who can work bs7 and add it to my total posthumously.
