I love reading Chrissy Brand’s posts on her blog, DX International.
Yesterday, she posted “The Joy of Shortwave,” in which she talks about the advantages of tuning in the world via shortwave radio. As she mentions all of the stations that she casually logs in the UK, I realize how fond I am of the same stations, and how Chrissy and I–though an ocean apart–may often listen to the same shows at the same time. Because on the shortwaves, local is global, not to mention instantaneous.
Take it from Chrissy: Shortwave radio is very much alive, all you need to do is listen.
I would encourage you to bookmark DX International–which celebrates shortwave radio programming with a touch of nostalgia.
