The Winter SWL Fest is a conference of radio enthusiasts of all stripes, from DC to daylight. Every year scores of radio enthusiasts descend on the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania suburbs for a weekend of camaraderie. The Fest is sponsored by NASWA, the North American Shortwave Association, but it covers much more than just shortwave; mediumwave (AM), scanning, satellite TV, and pirate broadcasting are among the other topics that the Fest covers.
This screening is a chance to mark the anniversary of the last transmission ever sent from these towers, by sharing the film for the first time with the community where it was made, with the people who speak in the film, and with the technicians who once worked at the site. A reception for the community will follow at CoyWolf.
