ZL DXCC Card Checker
The ARRL runs the DXCC awards program which you obtain awards by submitting your QSL cards (or Logbook of the World credits) to the ARRL headquarters in the USA.  A number of ZL's have applied for and obtained various levels of achievement including top of the Honour Roll for having worked all DXCC entities.

A card checkers function is to receive and check cards to make sure they are valid for DXCC Applications and Total upgrades. Your cards will be checked and returned within a few days to you and the card checker will sign the application and forward it to the ARRL DXCC Desk.
