The memorable issue of BDXC’s magazine is free to non-members

I'm the only Japanese BDXC member, who contribute to monthly club's magazine 'Communication' many times.

It's my great pleasure to be able to appear lots of times so that I should indicate deeply appreciate editors' efforts.

 

On July 2016, achieved the 500th issue by acclaim!

I assure that the 500th is a momentous milestone in a journey of long-distance (DX) radio listening and radio history that stretches back to the very first issue of Communication way back in 1974.

 

Fortunately, you can obtain the historical bulletin from the BDXC's official web site without any troublesome process! (as a sample of recent issue)

To mark this special 500th issue, Alan Pennington looks back at Communication and the hobby as it was in 1976.

The're several other articles in this packed edition, including Part 2 of Tracing Radio Berlin International, a feature on Japan's English-language domestic broadcasters which provided by me (page #24) and details of constructing a EWE antenna.

 

I'm grateful for what I've done on such a significant occasion!
