We have received approval of the Pacific Northwest DX Convention as an ARRL Operating Specialty Convention. Approval means that the convention will appear on the ARRL Hamfest and Conventions Calendar on the ARRL Web page and in the July QST issue of QST. We also get a handful of ARRL gift certificates to be used as door prizes for the convention.
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 will be hosted by the Spokane DX Association (sdxa.org).
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.
The convention chairpersons are Randy Foltz (K7TQ) and Mel Ming (N7GCO). Jay Lopes (N7ZUF) is in charge of getting us some great prizes next year, Jay Holcomb (WA0WWW) is in charge of registrations, and I’m the webmaster, John Gager (K7KB). Please use the “Contact Us” tab at the top of the page if you need to get in touch with anyone on the convention committee.
We will be having our convention at the beautiful Centennial Hotel, part of the Davenport Hotel chain, in downtown Spokane. The Hotel is now taking reservations and you can get more information by clicking the “Hotel Reservations” menu tab above.
