3. GENERAL INFORMATION
The ELECTRONIC DX PRESS (EDXP) is a non-commercial, hobby venture, convened on a voluntary basis by Bob Padula, of Melbourne, Australia. Bob is a Consultant Professional Communications Engineer, and a freelance technical writer, and he's been actively involved with the radio monitoring (DXing) movement in editorial, or managerial capacities, for some 43 years. He's a foundation (1965) and Life Member of the Australian Radio DX Club Incorporated, and holds the Australian Government Award of the Medal of the Order of Australia, (OAM) for services rendered in a voluntary capacity to shortwave radio.

Publication Frequency: EDXP will be issued frequently, at intervals consistent with the timeliness and importance of information received.

Spread the Word! Members are invited to recommend or nominate other people or groups who they feel would like to receive EDXP - please advise the EDXP Manager of their E-mail addresses.

No Public Postings: EDXP is not posted on public access servers and is intended to be a contributory service to the global SW DXing community. Reuse of information assumes that normal editorial courtesies will be observed, with acknowledgment to the original source, and to "EDXP".

Participation: Is conditional on members providing relevant information and news via e-mail, fax, telephone, or postal mail, at least once in every three four editions. Members who fail to satisfy this requirement will be deleted from all EDXP services.

Commercial Use: Reuse of EDXP data for commercial (profit) applications is acceptable, provided that arrangements have been negotiated in advance. Information: News forwarded to EDXP is expected to be original. In this sense, members may include individuals, electronic newsletters, DX radio clubs, radio stations, DX Federations, publishers, booksellers, transmission planners, and any other organization or person with an interest in international radio broadcasting.

Clubs and Federations: If you receive EDXP as a representative of an organisation, you are entitled to reuse material sourced to EDXP , with the exception of items designated as "Copyright". You do NOT need to seek special approval! You are welcome to distribute EDXP within your organisation for editorial and research purposes. You are also invited to send in personal items! The further distribution of EDXP material by organisations and individuals who are not registered to receive is not allowed.

Status: EDXP is NOT a "Club" in the accepted sense. Its principal output is the EDXP Newsletter, distributed electronically, supported by additional services as described in this site. It brings together relevant information in a structured and timely manner, as contributed by individual recipients or researched from other sources. It operates on the premise that the sum of pooled information is much greater than individual parts!

Copyright: EDXP is Copyright!!! This obliges recipients NOT to repost it, or extracts, on public access messaging systems!

Hello: Prospective members are sent a copy of the most recent edition of EDXP and enjoy trial membership for the next three issues.
