NW Arkansas has a new Card Checker

David Norris – K5UZ, ARRL Delta Division Director has just announced that Jay Bromley – W5JAY has been selected as an ARRL QSL Card Checker for northwest Arkansas.  Arkansas has three other card checkers that serve other areas of the state.  However, with the evolution of the large ham population in northwest Arkansas, the decision was made to service that need for our area and add another card checker to the Arkansas group.

Jay is a lifetime DXer, with decades of experience under his belt.  He has acquired 9-band DXCC (and getting close to 10-band) and is on the ARRL DXCC Honor Roll with 335 countries confirmed out of the 340 entities  on the current ARRL DXCC countries list.  So, Jay is well qualified to serve in this capacity.  We are pleased that one of our valued BVRC members has been selected to serve in this very important position.

Also, being a DXCC card checker does not restrict Jay to checking and certifying DX (foreign) QSL cards only.  Jay is also authorized to check cards for stateside contacts for hams pursuing their Worked-All-States awards, and he additionally can check cards for the VUCC award (VHF/UHF Century Club).  Jay said he looks forward to helping any and all NW Arkansas amateurs in checking and confirming their QSL cards.

If you would like to contact Jay to have any of your QSL cards checked, here is Jay’s contact information:
