See you in New Westminster, BC in 2023

Plans are being made for the 2023 convention, hosted in New Westminster, BC, from August 11 to 13 by the Orca DX and Contest Club. Check back later this year for more information.

Orca President Dave Johnson, VE7VR, and the organizing committee are making arrangements for the program of activities, seeking prizes and on-site vendors to make the 2023 PNW DX Convention a great experience for everyone.

We will be at the Inn at the Quay once again in 2023, so you can look forward to warm BC hospitality and an extraordinary waterfront location.

In the meantime, please see the following note on behalf of the Spokane DX Association, hosts of the 2022 convention.

A note from the 2022 convention organizers:

The 67th Pacific Northwest DX Convention is now history! I know I had a great time, even though it was a lot of work. And from talking to the people who attended the convention, they seemed very happy with the lineup of speakers, media audio/video, and the convention in general. However, we are always looking for ways to improve for the next convention. If you have any complaints or thoughts on what we can do better the next time around, please leave us a comment using the “Contact Us” tab in the above menu. We would love to make the 71st convention even better!

The Convention Leadership team has a long list of people to thank. First of all, thanks to all of our speakers who gave up their time away from their families to come to our convention. I know I learned quite a bit from your presentations, and I’m sure the other attendees felt the same.

We had some wonderful prizes for our raffle and door prizes, so those donations were very much appreciated. The convention could not exist without your generosity. And to go along with that, we thank all those who purchased the raffle tickets. It goes a long way in supporting the clubs.

A big thanks goes to the convention support crew for all the work you did in the audio/visual setup, operation, and teardown. To Dale for his army of roaming raffle ticket hawkers. Also to those who worked in the Hospitality suite, your hospitality was quite obvious and appreciated! 🙂

And finally, our biggest thanks goes to those who attended our convention. You are what this is all about, and we could not do this without your participation. Please keep that in mind when the Orca DX and Contest Club hosts the 68th annual convention.

73 & Gud DX!

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.
