Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor Nick Hall-Patch who shares the following announcement:
IRCA Reprints open to public
The International Radio Club’s Reprints collection of over 1100 articles about antennas, radio propagation, receivers, accessories, plus items of general interest to MW DXers, continues to grow. We’ve published an update to the index, at DXer.ca [PDF] , so that everyone can get access to these latest additions. (also accessible at https://www.ircaonline.org/ “Free IRCA Reprints” button)
The latest update includes items from DX Monitor up the end of June 2022. as well as many items of interest from elsewhere, used with permission.
Added items in this update are marked “(NEW)”, plus there are a few updated articles as well.
Please pass on this information to others as you see fit.
(if you’ve used the index before, you may need to refresh your browser page to see the latest update, dated December 2022)
A blast from the past! Many of those articles brought back a flood of memories and the authors, many of whom are no longer with us. Way back before radios became solid state this IRCA and other Medium Wave DX clubs were what kept us up to date with the technology of the time.
Thanks to Nick Hall-Patch…another name from the distant past.
As an IRCA member in good standing (and a columnist for DX Monitor) I applaud this work. Some of the articles and newsletter items from, say, the 1970s, is pure nostalgia, but there are many technical articles here, too, and items about “which antennas work best on MW” (and how to build them!) is timeless.
Always nice: a zip with all pubs inside …
