DXCC Card Checkers

The vast majority of new QSL card contact verifications for DXCC credit are now performed via ARRL’s Logbook of the World (LoTW) program. That said, many amateurs still use physical QSL cards, or have cards from contacts prior to LoTW that need to be verified for DXCC credit.
QSL cards for new DXCC awards and endorsements may now be checked by an approved field DXCC Card Checker. This program applies to any DXCC award for an individual or station. The ARRL Northwestern Division has a number of ARRL Certified DXCC card checkers, in most of the Division’s Sections. For more information on the ARRL DXCC award program, please CLICK HERE
Card checkers are often at larger hamfests, conventions, and DX Club meetings. Note that ALL DXCC card checkers can now check QSL cards for 160 meter contacts. The current list and e-mail contact information for our Division card checkers are listed below:
