SW-AUS is an evolving, friendly Club, using modern technology for the interchange of information and news amongst its members There are no office-bearers in SW-AUS. Neither are there any constitutions, committees, boards, councils, secretaries, presidents, treasurers nor any other assemblage of palace courtiers! There are no financial reports or formal meetings.

SW-AUS operates similarly to its highly successful and very popular sister Club "MEDIUMWAVE AUSTRALIA", and is within the global parent organization "THE ELECTRONIC DX PRESS".

It is a condition of membership that members contribute news and information from time to time.

All new members are sent a small price list of publications available from us. These are generally offered at a little above cost, as we are not a money-making entity, and no GST is charged.

Our publication list also includes these annual references from overseas:

World Radio TV Handbook
Passport to Worldband Radio
Klingenfuss Shortwave Frequency Guide
