DXCC Card Checking
Go to the ARRL Online DXCC Application page and complete the application. Bring the completed application along with your cards to be checked.
The applicant and DXCC Card Checker must sign the application form.
Only eligible cards can be checked by DXCC Card Checkers. An application for a new award may contain any number of QSL confirmations from the list and shall not contain any QSLs that are not eligible for this program. The application may contain any number of cards, subject to eligibility requirements and fees as determined by Section I, Basic Rules of the DXCC rules.
It is no longer necessary for the applicant to provide the Card Checker with an SASE. The Card Checker will scan the signed application and forward it to the ARRL. All fees must be paid directly to the ARRL. If paying by check send it directly to the ARRL. If paying by credit card provide that with the ARRL Online DXCC Application.
