PNW DX Convention in Spokane this August

View an informative video...

The 2022 Pacific Northwest DX Convention will be hosted Aug. 5 to 7 by the Spokane DX Association. The venue this year is the Centennial Hotel in downtown Spokane. NOTE: there has been high demand for the limited number of available rooms -- book ASAP to be sure you get the discounted rate. Registration is open!

If you wish to register with meals, payment needs to be made by June 30. You can still register after that date, but only for the programs.

Lots of info on the PNW DX Convention website...

Bouvet Island, the #2 most-wanted DXCC entity, will be activated in January 2023 by a large team traveling by boat to the most remote uninhabited place on Earth.
