Please have the appropriate forms completed prior to entering the Card checking room. All fees must be paid either by Credit Card (preferred), or by check, made payable to ARRL.

Please note that the first hour of DXCC Card Checking (1:00 PM to 2:00 PM) will be for those who have 40 or fewer cards.

Additional signs will be posted in the Convention lobby as well as at the entrance to the Card Checking Room.

Cards will be checked on a "First-Come-First-Served" basis.

IOTA QSL Card Checking

Several of the U.S.A. IOTA "Checkpoints" willl be available for checking U.S.A. only operator QSLs for IOTA Awards at the 2017 Visalia Convention.

This will NOT be a part of the usual DXCC Card Checking, and will NOT take place during the Friday Night IOTA DINNER event.

A limited number of requests will be accepted, so if you are seriously interested in submitting an application of no more than 120 IOTA QSLs to be checked at the Convention, please send an email A.S.A.P. to and indicate the number of cards you plan to submit. This will help ascertain the volume of IOTA QSLs to be checked.

Full details and procedures will then be emailed di rectly to you, including the location for drop-off and pick-up of QSLs at the Convention. Please "Whitelist" Don's email address and/or be sure to check any SPAM filt ering folder(s) for a reply. You will be notified if you are one of the applicants approved for card checking in Visalia (or if not).

The joint IOTA/IREF table with informational items will be located in the Convention Center Exhibit Hall lobby (see floor plan). You are invited to stop by for an eyeball QSO with some of the friendly IOTA/IREF folks!
