* 2020 W9DXCC DX Convention Cancelled *


The board of directors for the Northern Illinois DX Association voted unanimously on May 19 to cancel this year’s W9DXCC convention due to the coronavirus pandemic and expected limitations in Illinois surrounding large gatherings this fall. Plans are already being made to book the 2021 convention at the Marriott in Naperville, where the 68th annual W9DXCC is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 11-12.

Thank you for your continued support of W9DXCC and we look forward to gathering in person again in 2021. There have been tentative discussions about a possible virtual convention this year. Updates will be shared via email and the website if there are developments.
