Shortwave News on DVD

Digital Reprint of all Editions ever published from 1957-2015

The "Danish Short Wave Club International" (DSWCI) was founded in November 1956 and is one of the most traditional and by far the most international club for radio enthusiasts worldwide. Since January 1957 the club publishes the regular magazine "Shortwave News" which for decades now is a unique source of information due to a most international network of correspondents and monitors worldwide.

From 1957 to 2000 "Shortwave News" was published a monthly basis, and after that every sixth week. In 1957 and 1958 the magazine was published in Danish and from 1957 to 1969 two different editions were distributed: "Shortwave News" in English and "Kortbolge Nyt" in Danish. Since January1970 the magazine is exclusively in English language.

The DSWCI decided its last Annual General Meeting in 2015 to close the club at the end of 2016. But it was agreed that everything ever published from the DSWCI should also be available for future generations of radio enthusiasts:

A unique blend of accurate news, reports and background information which was only possible with the great support of countless people during thepast almost six decades.

During the last years we got access to every edition of "Shortwave News" and"Kortbolge Nyt" ever published. The magazines were scanned, digitized and processed with an OCR software. The work is finished and therefore we now can offer a DVD with almost 60 years of radio-history and club-history
of the DSWCI.
