The Society to Preserve the Engrossing Enjoyment of DXing or SPEEDX club was founded in 1971 by former officers and members of the American Shortwave Listeners Club.

SPEEDX published a printed monthly bulletin posted to members. It also participated in the Shortwave Paradise BBS, in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

The society was fairly active until approximately 1985, but afterwards membership started to decline until the society was dissolved in 1995. Former SPEEDX members oriented towards utility DXing founded the internet-based World Utility News (WUN) club.
