2015 PACIFIC NORTHWEST DX CONVENTION – AUGUST 7-9
HAVE YOU REGISTERED YET?
It’s the premier annual event in the Pacific Northwest, rotating between the leading DX clubs including Spokane’s SDXA. This year, the Seattle-based Western Washington DX Club (WWDXC) is sponsoring the DX convention and it’s seminars are going to be informative and timely (see link below).
The SDXA will again sponsor the event in 2017, headed by experienced Chairperson Randy K7TQ of Moscow. The annual events’ successes are dependent on a quid pro quo between the various sponsoring clubs. We go to theirs; they come to ours.
As of July 8, there were 130 people signed up for the convention, but only 7 who are members of our organization. Can we get more of you to attend? It can’t but help our attendance in 2017!
