Under a new licensing law - VP0S"X" or VP0S"XX" Callsigns are now being
released for operations on the South Sandwich Island group - the
S indicating South Sandwich and "X" from A-Z, though its likely that
any SGSSI amateur license maybe valid for both South Georgia and South
Sandwich regions - this should be resolved in license updates soon

Flo, GM4DMA, reports the following on QRZ.com:

My callsign was issued on 27th April 2023,

I also am licenced as VP0 GB (South Georgia), VP8SB (Falkland Islands),
and currently VP8SB for Antarctic operations but this too will be
converted to VP0 format in the future. I also assist with the management
of the VP8ADE 28MHz beacon on Adelaide island, Antarctica installed and
operational since 1979 or so.

This one is easy. Just add VP0S to the existing prefixes (VP8S,VP8-S,4K1ZI) for South Sandwich in the Prefix Table. VP0S is currently not used, so no date ranges to worry about.

I added it to the master copy.

Tnx & 73,
