Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Harald Kuhl, who shares the following message sent by Anker Petersen of the The Danish Shortwave Club International (DSWCI):
Dear DSWCI members.
In a few hours the DSWCI exists no longer.
But our webmaster Rolf Wernli has done a tremendous job between Christmas and New Year by changing our wellknown website to an electronic archive with good reading for all members !
If our former website appears, it is because it has been saved in your computer.
www.dswci.org, press Enter and the new website should appear.
Enjoy and have a Happy New Year!
What a brilliant resource! Thank you, Harald, for passing this information along and many thanks to the fine folks at the DSWCI for sharing their archives with the radio community!

Many thanks to
SWLing Post contributor, Jonathan Marks, who shares the following photos he snapped during the final meeting of the DSWCI meeting (click images to enlarge):
Anker Petersen kicks off the final DSCWI meeting of all.
The group shot outside the longwave transmitter at Kalundborg, about 1 and a half train ride from Copenhagen.
Danish Radio is doing some interesting experiments with AM on this site as a back-up technology to DAB+.
Anker Petersen hosts the final DSCWI dinner at a great restaurant in Kalundborg.
The town of Kalundborg, famous for its church with 5 spires – and its longwave transmitter still used by the fishing fleet.
Victor Goonetilleke, early DSCWI member, travelled from Sri Lanka to be part of the historic gathering.
Thank you for sharing these photos, Jonathan. It’s sad to see an institution like the DSWCI come to an end–especially because clubs like this become an amazing venue for friends to meet.
Update: Jonathan notes that he’s posted more photos on his flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanmarks/
