The Winter SWL Fest is a conference of radio hobbyists of all stripes,
from DC to daylight. Historically, every year scores of hobbyists have
descended on the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania suburbs for a weekend of
camaraderie. The Fest is sponsored by NASWA, the North American
Shortwave Association, but it covers much more than just shortwave;
mediumwave (AM), scanning, satellite TV, and pirate broadcasting are
among the other topics that the Fest covers. Whether you’ve been to

virtual courtesy of the Covid-19 pandemic. All activities will be
conducted online via the Zoom webinar platform.
Registration will be $ 10 per computer screen to defray the Zoom hosting
expenses. If you already have a PayPal ID you can simply send $ 10 from
your account to swlfest [at] naswa.net. If you aren’t a PayPal member
you may also register online via PayPal here. Paper registrations will
not be processed for 2022.
Your hosts, Richard Cuff and John Figliozzi, work throughout the year to
ensure that attendees have a great time over the weekend, and by all
accounts, they succeed stunningly. How else could this event have lasted
for 35 years (egad) — even with a Pandemic — and draw people from around
the world to southeastern Pennsylvania? Won’t you join us.
