Q: I already made a donation but I cannot find my callsign/name in the sponsor list on your website. Did you receive my donation?

A: There are several possible situations:

  1. You made your QSL request and/or donation very recently. Normally the donor list is updated, and LOTW credits are transmitted to ARRL, about once each week. This work is done by volunteers on a time-available basis. If you donated via credit card/PayPal, we receive electronic notification of the donation very quickly; in this case the donation should be listed in the next weekly website update. If you mailed your donation to Radio Expeditions LLC in the USA, your donation should be listed with 1-2 weeks after the envelope was delivered. If you mailed your donation to DL6LAU in Germany, your envelope is in a very big queue (as of 2008 March); it will take 3-6 weeks before it is opened and the donation appears on the website.
  2. You made an electronic donation (credit card/PayPal) more than two weeks ago, and nothing is on the website. In this case, please send us an email (click on "Contact us" on the left side menu of on www.vp6dx.com; include your name, callsign, method of payment and date of payment so we can investigate.
