WDEL Blog: Eclectic Hobbies with Allan Loudell

Great Radio Hobbyists' Conference March 5th--6th about an hour from here!

If you have a special fascination for any aspect of radio as a hobby (shortwave, A.M. medium-wave, F.M., and TV DX'ing; scanning; pirates; global satellite TV; Q.S.L. collecting; to a lesser extent, amateur and C.B. radio) - or perhaps you'd like to revive memories of listening to the classic shortwave stations of the past - check out this link for the Winter SWL Fest in Kulpsville, Pennsylvania, the first weekend of March...


Radio hobby enthusiasts drive and fly in from all over the United States and Canada; some even fly in from Latin America, Europe, and Japan. But from most of northern Delaware, you're talking about a drive of one hour and a few minutes.
