What's Happening

Thanks for joining us
From July 25 to 27, hams from BC, Alberta, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and points beyond the Pacific Northwest (see the list) enjoyed excellent presentations, swapped tales of the ones they worked and the ones that got away, and enjoyed ideal sunny weather at New Westminster, BC's Inn at the Quay.

We are very grateful to these major donors and all the vendors who helped make the 2014 Pacific Northwest DX Convention such a great experience.

BC hams worked the world in the 2014 BC QSO Party on February 1-2. See how everyone did this year.
