The ARRL DX Century Club, DXCC, is Amateur Radio’s premier award that hams can earn by confirming on the air contacts with 100 countries. You can begin with the basic DXCC award and work your way up to the DXCC Honor Roll.
As part of the requirement for this award, your contacts must be verified. If you have a QSL Card as your confirmation, you will need to have that contact verified by the ARRL or by an approved DXCC Card Checker. This process is called Field Checking. Field checking of QSL cards it available to both club members and non-club members by contacting Brad Chesnut, AK0BC.

Good luck and 73.
