Radio hobbyists from around North America to gather for SWL Winterfest in Plymouth Meeting

Our annual appeal for radio hobbyists:

Long-distance radio hobbyists (DX'ers), whether attracted to long-distance A.M. medium wave, longwave, shortwave, TV, FM, or UHF DX; amateur radio operators (hams); CB'ers; scanner afficionados; "pirate" radio broadcasters; etc., will be descending on Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania... Friday--Saturday, March 14th--15th for the annual SWL Winterfest.

Some of the highlights of this year's schedule of events (from my perspective): Behind the Curtain: North Korean Broadcasting & Propaganda... Radio Broadcasting: The Earliest Years... & Whatever Happened to Digital Radio?

People drive or fly in from hundreds of miles; from northern Delaware, we're under an hour away to Plymouth Meeting.

Perhaps your old receivers / rigs are gathering dust in a closet or the attic, but with more leisure time, this is the time to reintroduce yourself to the hobby of your youth.

Of course, a lot has changed. Many favorite international broadcasters have disappeared entirely (Radio Canada International, Radio Netherlands Worldwide); others have made a complete transition to the internet; but still other stations and programs have emerged. Find out the latest.

You could drive up each day, or just stay at the hotel (Reduced rates available for two weeks)...

Here's the link to SWL Fest 2014...
