But Bruce – there isn’t anything on my shortwave to listen to! – Really? There is a whole world of stuff out there – the next 3 to 5 weeks are going to be stupid busy but I will try to get some tips and tricks and techniques put together for you folks to help you start listening to “stuff” – SWL is not hard and it can be done on a thin budget – for me my budget is not very thin as it lies somewhere between serious hobby and obsession with me – LOL!
Folks – there is a tremendous amount of programming being broadcast right now on shortwave <<<CLICK HERE>>> and that’s not counting pirate stations or clandestine broadcasting – numbers stations don’t really fall into clandestine – or unknown – stations – how long do you think it takes to plot a stations location if they are broadcasting with any amount of power for any length from the same location on a repeating basis? Not long at all – pirate and especially clandestine stations change frequencies and locations often – most of the time clandestine stations will not broadcast twice from the same location – For obvious reasons . . .
As I post this Radio New Zealand is coming in like a local station here in the mid-west – they are transmitting to the South Pacific Islands region and we are getting “overshoot” from the broadcast – lots of good stuff out there – and no, you don’t have to have a shortwave radio to listen to most shortwave broadcasts – click on the hyper text link above and listen live on their streaming service – but what’s the fun in that??
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
