I had hoped we would be in good enough shape to hold the W9DXCC yet in 2020. It was going to be my one ham fest event for the year:
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 had been 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.

Guess it will be 2021 – fingers crossed!
