ARRL Card Checkers

DX Century Club

For details visit the ARRL web site at: The ARRL DX Century Club Program

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) has appointed twelve RAC members as DXCC Field Representatives who have the authority to check cards for DXCC candidates. The following have been appointed and are ready to check cards received by mail or in person:

No cards should be submitted unless properly sorted and accompanied by a duly completed current DXCC Award Application form. This is part of the ARRL DXCC List - Order #7067 available from ARRL at US$3. This also contains complete rules. The form and the current DXCC Countries List  is also available on the ARRL web site at http://www.arrl.org/awards/dxcc.
Cards must be arranged by band, then by mode, and be listed on the form exactly as arranged. The list indicates 81 prefixes for which QSL cards are not eligible for field checking, and should be submitted to ARRL.

An appointment should be made if you wish to deliver your cards in person. Bring with you all requested items.

Cards should be sent only by courier or registered mail, securely packed in a carton that is reusable for their return. A money order payable to ARRL in US funds, a stamped envelope addressed to ARRL with sufficient postage and funds for return courier or registered mail should be included. Neither RAC nor ARRL are responsible for cards lost or damaged in transit or in the hands of a Field Representative.

Canadian DXCC Card Checkers **DXCC applicants are strongly urged to contact your selected Field Representative by telephone before shipping any cards.**

DXCC Card Checkers are also authorized to check WAS and VUCC applications, if they wish to do so.
