The 2018 death of Bill Oliver, longtime publisher and business manager for both the LWCA and our sister organization, the North American Shortwave Association (NASWA), disrupted activities of both organizations for a time. The former Levittown PA mailing address should no longer be used. Both clubs have new postal and e-mail addresses:

LWCA: Kevin Carey, 9213 State Route 5 and 20, Bloomfield, NY 14469
E-Mail: HQ.LWCA@gmail.com

NASWA: P. O. Box 3292, Allentown, PA 18104
Website: NASWA.Net

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).

Membership dues for the Longwave Club of America as of 1 July 2017 are $27.00 a year. Canada and Mexico: $30. Elsewhere: US$39 per year. If you remit via PayPal, please add $1 to each of these rates to cover PayPal surcharges. Use the new HQ email address for recipient.

A new PDF electronic-delivery-only option is also available as of December 2019, which costs only $15 per year anywhere in the world. (Please be sure to give the publisher your preferred, most reliable, e-mail address when using this option.)
