Pacific Northwest DX Convention

Our theme this year was “To boldly go…” — dedicated to all those who risk their time, money and physical well-being to bring DX entities to our log books!

More than 110 avid DXers enjoyed talks that took us from Bouvet to Botswana to Vanuatu, and many other rare destinations — even into the near (and far) future of artificial intelligence.

Thanks to all who attended, and special thanks to the sponsors and donors who made it a great gathering!

We’re looking forward to the 2024 convention, hosted next August by the Western Washington DX Club in Seattle.



Thanks for joining us in New Westminster!

The Orca DX and Contest Club proudly hosted the 2023 convention in gorgeous New Westminster — at the centre of Metro Vancouver, BC — from August 11 to 13.

Convention History:

The PNW DX Convention has been held every summer since 1955 with the sponsorship rotating between the major DX clubs of the Pacific Northwest. There was no convention in 2020 because of Covid, and the convention in 2021 had to be done via Zoom for the same reasons. The 67th Annual Convention was hosted by the Spokane DX Association (

Together, these organizations have upheld the rich traditions of amateur radio and the pursuit of DX through five solar cycles. Over the decades, we have enjoyed wonderful friendships and the very special international camaraderie that ham radio fosters in the Pacific Northwest and around the world.
