About

The Western Washington DX Club (WWDXC) is one of the largest and most active radio clubs on the West Coast. Our members are licensed amateur radio operators who have an interest in DX (distance) communications and radio contest operating. The WWDXC is an ARRL-affiliated club.
The Club... Club meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of each month.  Informal "DX Lunch" gatherings are held around club territory as organized by the club’s members. WWDXC members stay in close touch through the club’s newsletter, The Totem Tabloid, via the internet using the club’s e-mail reflector, and over the club’s W7DX repeater (147.00- 103.5PL).  Membership in the WWDXC provides the opportunity for comradery, DX Community, teamwork, coupled with a spirit of  friendly competition.
