About MediaScan/Sweden Calling DXers

MediaScan was the world’s oldest program of its kind, on the air since 1948. Originally solely about shortwave radio, the program was called Sweden Calling DXers. The program was founded by the late Arne Skoog.

When Arne retired in 1978, George Wood took over.

Over the years the program moved from its initial concentration on shortwave to coverage of satellite broadcasting, and more recently Cyberspace.

The last radio broadcast of MediaScan was on July 17, 2001. The original Sweden Calling DXers bulletins was replaced by the MediaScan Online Edition and e-mail newsletter.
