First Report from the W9DXCC Convention 2010

Just quick missive from the W9DXCC Hotel QTH in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.

An excellent drive down, with only a few weather delays, was made much more enjoyable with the company of George W9EVT as the navigator.

Arrived in time to join in an excellent time at a local pizzeria with the Society of Midwest Contesters, and very much enjoyed the evening’s conversation with the NCDXF PJ7 Expedition’s team leader Craig K9CT, NCDXF’s President Bruce W6OSP, team member Ralph K9ZO and about 18 other SMC members & friends.

Hearing of the NCDXF upcoming PJ7 event, especially as we’d been to Sint Maartin two years ago, and several of the other new entities this last winter, really puts the DXpedition “bug” into a person! Maybe sometime soon…..

As my present days start early, I’m tired enough thatI’m not going to be a hardcore DX Club Hospitality room participant, and will write more later in the weekend!
