This is the home of DXer.ca - the oldest radio website in the known Universe


The DXer.ca website site has been on the air for over 24 years and is listed as a resource in the 2018 edition of the World Radio TV Handbook!

Radios for sale. READ DOWN!

It has been pretty quiet around here and I am taking a break from making so many boxes, VACTROL units and Phasers (no time!) - and putting some energy in freshening up the site, maybe adding some content and features and kick starting the new solar cycle... still doing stuff by request. Send an e-mail. Hey, you never know,


If you have been a regular visitor to DXer.ca, I would love to hear from you. Websites tend to be one way mirrors at times - and it can get very lonely in here. We have a forum but nobody does forums anymore so that will likely be deleted in time for the coming updates! If you have an argument in favor of keeping some kind of forum alive, please speak up now! Send an e-mail - if only to say, "Hey! I am alive too!"

Audio Library -- we are working with Thomas Witherspoon over on the SW Archive to add access to my sizeable audio archive from the 1970's - here is a Sample of FEBC Manila Philippines from October of 1975!



DrakeR8 B 4SaleHosted in Victoria B.C. Canada, the DXer.ca website has promoted the radio listening (SWL/DXing) hobby since the mid-1990's -- as well as promoting Amateur radio, electronics experimentation and development. My call sign is VA7WWV - but we don't spend too much time talking about Ham radio here as there are plenty of other websites and YouTube channels devoted to that...


Picture above - we gotta move these SW radios, gotta move these active antennas.

We are doing a very, very significant update to DXer.ca - brief outages may take place - All of our main features, galleries and photo/file downloads are being turned off during the upgrade... but they will return with a promise of MORE content!

Bonus: Also doing a clearout on my shack inventory: I have a Drake R8B (immaculate condition) that needs a good home, ideally in the Northwest -- or in Canada -- at an impossible to resist price... if you have read down this far you are definitely in for a treat! I also have a showroom quality NRD525 with matching speaker that I will ship to most anywhere in North America for a song. It's looking for a good home, not a quick Ebay flip.
I also have a fully functional Barlow-Wadley XCR-30 (originally owned by Ian McFarland that needs a forever home too!) That just about covers it. Again, if you have made it this far down the home page, good for you! Send me a note. Let's talk. I am in Canada so preferences to Canadian radio enthusiasts for clearing my shelves!
I also have some constructed and ready to flash Misek-Lankford Phasers that I hand built.
