THE AMANDX PAGES




This site is dedicated to a great Manitoba DX'er who left us all too soon in 2001.
Larry Shewchuk..who gave of himself and helped many of us in the hobby to grow and love DX'ing.
Gone but never forgotten ol' buddy.



This site is run by AMANDX to help DX'ers and SWL's enjoy the hobby of radio listening.

The information is also of use to Ham Radio Operators but please be advised the advice is not meant for transmission of signals but only for reception of signals.

The idea behind the site is to supply simple easy to read information.

There are articles on Receivers, Antennas, Frequencies, Call signs and a host of other radio related topics.

There are pages of information available for both the new and experienced listener listed below.

Have a look at our special Canadian Pages below for information directed towards Canadian DX'ers.

If you would like to use an article or link to your web site just write to us at the address below.

The information and ideas expressed here are subject to change due to the constant changes that take place each year within the hobby. We try to be as accurate as possible but errors may appear. Any help with corrections or your personal comments are greatly appreciated via the e-mail at the bottom of this page.
