Quick quiz: what organization was founded in 1933 in York, Pa., for the purpose of exchanging information about the radio hobby? Hint: it still exists.
It's the National Radio Club, which considers itself the world's oldest and largest medium-wave (AM Radio) DX club.
It will hold its annual convention and celebrate its 70th anniversary Aug. 29-31 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, at the Holiday Inn Select DFW Airport South hotel in Irving. The not-for-profit club has some 800 members. Its DX News started as a mimeograph bulletin about equipment, antennas, radio stations and radio listening; now it is issued 30 times a year. The group also maintains a library of technical information and produces a monthly audiocassette.
The club will operate its convention radio station, WNRC, which will be heard in the hotel. Plans for Internet streaming are in the works. (Is there a chapter dedicated to Internet DXing?)
