DXCC/VUCC/WAS/IARU card checkers will be available on Friday and Saturday

Bring a copy of your most recent ARRL DXCC Award Credit slip, completed Awards Application and Record Sheet, cards sorted in proper format determined by application used, check or credit card number for fee payment envelope with sufficient postage to mail application addressed to:
225 Main Street
Newington, CT 06111-1400

Forms and complete rules are available at http://www.arrl.org/awards ARRL Awards Program. IARU Awards Rules and Application can be found here.

If you do not use LoTW or the on-line DXCC application then you may still use the traditional paper application. The Hybrid application process has been discontinued.

Download the interactive application form here and use the record sheet to list your QSL cards.

It is extremely important that your paper QSL cards are sorted in the correct order, band, mode within band, multiple QSO cards at the end.

Sorting your cards this way helps streamline the data entry process.

Cards must be in the same order as they are listed on the record sheet.

Please remember that the sort order MUST be:
1) Band
2) Mode within each band
3) Cards with multiple QSOs should be grouped together at the end of your submission.

List all 80m CW cards, then all 80m phone cards, then all 80m RTTY (digital) cards.
Next list all 40m CW cards, then list 40m phone cards followed by your 40m digital cards.
Continue through each band in the same order.
Cards with multiple QSOs should be listed at the end of the record sheet.

Note: Please do not sort cards by prefix or country.

Field Checkers may check current and deleted entities except 160M QSO's. They, 160 Meter Q's, still must be sent to ARRL HQ.
