New DX Award Announced
How many times you have you worked a DX station or expedition, sent for the card, got the QSL, sent it to the ARRL DXCC desk and got a rejection slip? Rejected for lack of documentation. That preciously earned QSL is just so much worthless pasteboard because the ARRL won't accept it. Sure, everybody knows the DX was where they say they were. But they never got their documentation sent to the ARRL.
Well, now those worthless cards aren't so worthless. The Lost Island DX Society (LIDS) is proud to announce the DX Don't Count Century Club (DXDCCC) Award. This handsome certificate is issued for having a minimum of one hundred QSL cards rejected from the ARRL DXCC program. Only valid QSL cards from rejected DX operations are acceptable for the award. Contacts with Slim are not valid, in any sense of the word. Operations by Romeo and Don Miller also eligible for the DXDCCC award. Endorsements will be available for those surpassing the century mark. Details on submissions to follow.
