Yes, there are
amateurs who transmit and receive, and then there are people
who DX LW, MW, SW, FM broadcast, VHF/UHF (scanning), and TV.
Sometimes all of the above, or different bands for different
seasons. All different branches of the radio
DXing has become more of a challenge in N. America since the
conversion a few years ago, but I think there are people
still doing it, with elaborate antenna systems, phasers,
signal boosters, etc.

We're basically "Listeners" or
Dx'ers. Amateur Radio is understood to be licensed
operators in the Ham bands.
speaking, we might be called amateurs, but
"hobbyist" is a better fit.
