ARRL Card Checking:
     Since All THREE of West Virginia’s ARRL Card Checkers are WVDXA members, we normally have 1, 2 or all 3 in attendance at these meetings.  So, if you have QSL’s you would like to have checked for DXCC (or W.A.S., 5BWAS, etc.) you can bring them to the meeting.  Even 160-M QSL’s can be checked for your DXCC so nothing is off the table.  For DXCC awards, please enter your QSL’s in the ARRL’s Online DXCC program and print the forms right from there.
