Re: How long does it take to verify QSL Application

While QSL checks at ARRL HQ take about a month, how long does it take if everything is in LoTW?

For field checking at sanctioned events, does the QSL process speed up and are there any limitations to the use of field checking for VUCC, DXCC, WAS or WAC?

So the answer, Jerry, is that QSL checks by HQ take about a month - at the moment. 

Doubtless it varies across the year (e.g. busier at new year), with extraordinary events (such as Covid) and with postal delays (a fact of life for those of us who choose to live in Back of Beyond).
