LONGWAVE CLUB OF AMERICA 45 Wildflower Road, Levittown PA 19057


The Longwave Club of America was organized in January, 1974 to promote monitoring and experimentation on frequencies below the AM broadcast band. Such activities have come to include hearing and identifying navigational beacons, recording and analyzing natural radio emissions at very low frequencies, transmitting under low power rules in the 1750 meter band (and secondarily, on other frequencies where such Part 15 experimentation is also permitted), and advocating for amateur radio in the longwave spectrum.

The club is a not-for-profit organization, and dues are charged only to cover publication of the club bulletin, mailing, promotional and bookkeeping costs. The LWCA is a member organization of the Association of North American Radio Clubs (ANARC), and is a sister organization of the North America Shortwave Association (NASWA), with whom it shares the publisher of its bulletin.

Membership dues for the Longwave Club of America (as of 1 July 2017) are $27.00 a year, delivered in an envelope. (Non-envelope delivery has been discontinued due to new postal regulations that would greatly increase the cost of printing.) Canada and Mexico: $30. Elsewhere: US$39 per year by Priority Mail. If you remit via PayPal, please add $1 to each of these rates to cover PayPal surcharges.

Dues include our monthly publication, The LOWDOWN. Checks and money orders should be sent to the publisher, Bill Oliver, at The Longwave Club of America, 45 Wildflower Road, Levittown, PA 19057.

For the convenience of members overseas, the publisher now accepts payments through PayPal. PayPal payment should be made to the publisher's e-mail address below, and will show as NASWA, not LWCA. In the PayPal message area, please state your postal address and the fact that you are subscribing to the LWCA. Remember to include $1 additional when paying by this method. All queries about subscriptions should be sent to:
