FYI, the 64th annual W9DXCC DX Convention and Banquet will be held on Sept. 16-17, 2016, in Schaumburg, Illinois.
Sponsored by the Northern Illinois DX Association, the event is the premier DX gathering in the region and is an ARRL-approved operating specialty convention. Contest University and DX University programs will be held Friday, with presentations for new and veteran DXers and contest operators. Saturday’s daylong session will feature speakers, exhibits, QSL card checking, a CW pileup contest and many prizes, including a Yaesu FT DX 3000.
The evening banquet is a time to relax with keynote speaker Tom Gallagher, NY2RF, the new ARRL CEO. For family members, Woodfield Mall, which offers a wide array of shopping, is one traffic light south of the convention site at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, 1800 East Golf Road.
