World DX Club to close down

November 3, 2012

It has been announced that the World DX Club (WDXC) is to close, a final issue of Contact magazine is to be published in December.For 44 years the club have published their newsletter Contact magazine every month, containing station logs, news, information and comment about radio and radio broadcasts, both current and historical, primarily, but not exclusively, international shortwave radio.Regretfully due to health reasons Arthur and Olive Ward have had to step down from their club duties in charge of membership subscriptions, dispatch of bulletins as well as many contributions to the content of Contact over the years. Arthur became club printer in July 1974 and added his secretarial role in December 1979.This leaves the club with too few voluntary staff for the work involved and it has been decided to cease publication of Contact. It is understood that outstanding subscriptions are to be transferred to the British DX Club for UK and overseas members outside of North America and to the North American Shortwave Association for North American members.
