DXCC Card Checking

QSL cards for all current and deleted DXCC entities dating back to November 15, 1945 can be checked by ARRL Field Card Checkers, including cards for 160 meters.

There are three ways to apply for the DXCC award:

  1. Traditional paper cards (submitted to DXCC directly or approved by a card checker)
  2. Logbook of the World (LOTW)
  3. Online DXCC Application

The hybrid application submission (paper cards combined with Logbook of the World) has been discontinued. Each submission is now a separate application with separate fees for each one.

As it is less expensive (see, most applicants for the DXCC prefer the "online application" over the "traditional paper cards application".

After completing the online DXCC application, applicants may take their cards and forms together with an SASE (leaving off the return address) addressed to:
