Email & Newsgroups Discussion

There is actually an overkill in the number of shortwave related email discussion groups.  I've listed below the major ones I've been able to find.  Most have 300 - 500+ members.  Some cover niche topics, while others are for general discussion.  They can greatly add to your knowledge and general enjoyment of the hobby:

R-2000 Email Discussion Group
This group was specifically started to gather users of the Kenwood R-2000 Communications Receiver and allow them a forum in which to discuss related issues.

 Formed in response to unmoderated lists, this group promises healthy discussion where we can all have a pleasant place to talk about Kenwood Ham radio equipment and directly related news.   They give a wide latitude for differing opinions, but trolls will be moderated and inciteful, non-productive argument squashed.   Enjoy!

Shortwave Listening
Welcome to the fascinating world of SHORTWAVE LISTENING!!
If you're new to the hobby, don't be shy - post your questions!  If you were around when radio was invented, throw in your five cents (inflation)!  Interests here run from program listening to tropical band Dxing... from the high powered transmitters of the Voice of America/ BBC/ etc., to the lower powered Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corp. or Andean and Indonesian regional broadcasters, as well as utility listening.

 This Group is for discussing any topics relevant to the exciting hobby of Shortwave Radio Listening.  All those interested in this exciting hobby are encouraged to join in!  We have information on updated schedules, circuits, radio reviews, and much more!  New entrants to the hobby are also most welcome.

 Getting bored with your shortwave radio?  Or did you just learn a new trick it can do?  Bring your ideas and questions here and share in this moderated forum, free of the clutter and garbage you will find elsewhere.

Newsgroups are different from email discussion groups in two ways.  One, you do not have to subscribe to post a message to their forum.  Two, messages are not automatically emailed to you.  Instead, you have to go to their web site to read their messages.  Essentially they are a bulletin board service.  I've listed below all the ones I could find related to shortwave DXing.

NOTE:  Even if your internet service does not support newsgroups, you can still access and post to them through the Google links below:
