About the WTFDA

The Worldwide TV-FM DX Association is the only radio hobby club in North America that caters to the TV and FM DXer, as well as those who DX 30-50 MHz utilities and Weather Radio.

What is DX?

The term DX means distant reception, and those who “DX” look for weak, distant radio and television signals, with a goal of logging as many of these distant signals as possible. TV and FM signals normally travel in a line-of-sight, no more than 50 to 100 miles from their transmitter towers. DXers love to push the reception boundaries of stations by hundreds or thousands of miles using their skills, better antennas and equipment, and knowing when conditions are ripe for it.

Why be a Part of the WTFDA?

DXing is a hobby that anyone can do alone, but many of us like to share our experiences and be a part of a community. When you join the WTFDA, you immediately know that you are in good company with others who understand you, the hobby, and the nature of radio signals. If you’re just starting out, we’ll guide you along. If you’re an old timer, we’ll help you get back into the groove. Our mission is to hear and see new distant stations and above all, have fun doing it.
