Shortwave radio thread
« on: August 20, 2016, 02:36:20 AM »
Couldn't find a general thread about shortwave radio (didnt look very hard) so I'll go ahead and make one. Whats the best thing you heard/listen to on shortwave? I just got into listening to shortwave and wondering what the best radio is?

I have this as my main SW radio

I really like the analogue dial and that it can play MP3s but now Im thinking of getting into a digital display one. A few things I listen to are china international radio, Romania internal and WWV to hear space news (18 past the hour its hard to hear sometimes). What I really want is to hear Airtraffic control since I live near an airport so it shouldnt be that hard.

Just out of curiosity, did you ever get around to upgrading your radio?  :)

Can you recommend a good portable SW radio? I'm thinking of getting one of these because of all the other bells and whistles it comes with but maybe the tuning on it is shit. I don't know. What's the best bang for the buck?
