What does the circle do

Medium Wave News

The prime activity of the Circle has been the publication of Medium Wave News. This started life as a single stencilled page appearing in December 1954 growing gradually over subsequent years.

Now we publish MWN ten times per year and there are 40-64 pages per issue, depending on the amount of news and level of members contributions.

So that you can appreciate the scope of Medium Wave News, you can see annual indices of the magazine going back several years here on our web site.

MWN contains the most comprehensive and timely news and features about LW & MW to be found in any publication. It also carries full details of what listeners have recently heard, a mailbag column, technical articles, product reviews and items to help beginners with this fascinating hobby.

e-MWN

Historically Medium Wave News has always been printed on paper and posted to members from the UK. Indeed that is how MWN is still distributed today.

However we now have e-MWN which makes the magazine available from a web site as a downloadable pdf file. The benefits of this are significant as members can avoid postal delay and the cost of postage both of which are significant when international distribution applies.

e-MWN is available to all members with Internet access. It is exclusive to members.

e-news (our electronic mailing list)

As a special facility for all Medium Wave Circle members, we operate a free electronic mailing list. Using e-mail, members are kept up to date with the latest news, hot DX tips and developments around the world on a continuous basis. In an average month, around 100-500 items are posted on the list by our members. Therefore, hot news or loggings that would be out of date by the time the next edition of Medium Wave News appears, are instantly available. Questions can often be answered in minutes!

Unlike usenet and other internet services, the Circle's e-news service is entirely free of spam, commercial advertising and flame wars. The MWC e-news list is unique in that it is 100% LW & MW [no SW or FM] and is global in its scope. Members’ e-mail addresses are not sold or made available to spammers.

To take advantage of this service, members simply contact the Mailing-List Owner stating their name and e-mail address.

DX-peditions

Since the mid 1980s Circle members have frequently organised DX-peditions. These are trips to remote locations where a listening station is set up by a group of DXers in search of rare and unusual signals.
