A DX-PEDITION from 1928

A RADIO QUEST.

ROUND THE WORLD.

CITY ENTHUSIASTS SEEK NEW STATIONS.

(By “Experimenter.”)

From the Press, Volume LXIV, Issue 19338, 16 June 1928, Page 10.

Although a very pleasant evening may be spent listening to New Zealand and Australian broadcast, this form of radio entertainment is poor sport when compared with the fun to be had in searching the air in the hope of “logging” stations on the other side of the world, or, to put it in radio parlance, hunting for “DX” —the radio symbol for distance.

Washington state DXer Gary DeBock (above) who recently joined the  League has posted this report of a DXpedition to his favourite cliff-side location on the northern Oregon coast last month. Thanks to Paul Rawdon for reporting this to the DX Dialog user-group.

What Next For Shortwave

The Broadcasting Board of Governors, i.e. those responsible for VOA, Radio Liberty, Radio Farda, Radio Free Asia etc etc is asking for opinions on that.  Though their interest seems more aimed at dissemination of the American viewpoint than a sentimental desire to entertain the masses and give SW a new lease of life!
