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 30-50mhz utilities and Weather Radio. The term "DX" means "distant reception", and those who "DX" look for weak, distant radio and television signals, with an eye to logging as many of these distant signals as possible or obtaining the most distant reception of a given station. TV and FM signals normally travel in line-of-sight mode, 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.

DXing is a hobby that one can do by himself, but many of us like to share our logs and catches with others, and this is where the WTFDA comes in. WTFDA is a group of around 200 folks who share the same hobby. When you join the WTFDA, you immediately know that you are in good company with others who understand you. 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.

The WTFDA publishes a monthly club magazine for our members. It's called the VHF-UHF Digest and it contains both television and FM radio facilities changes, format/slogan changes, feature articles and DX reports.


The WTFDA also operates an email list, a forum and a group on Facebook. The club is also the owner and operator of the WTFDA FM Station Database, which is a valuable resource for FM Dxers in the Northern hemisphere that lists all FM stations in the USA, Canada, Mexico and many Caribbean countries.
