Thanks to so many of you who tweeted, commented and sent messages with live reception reports of the Shortwave Shindig! Despite a little technical difficulty with our Internet connection, which dropped the audio stream to WRMI for a few minutes, the show was quite a success.
And many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Chris Freitas, in Memphis, Tennessee, who writes:
This is audio from Shortwave Shindig at 9 pm Central time at the SWL Winterfest at Plymouth Meeting, PA on 2/27/15. It was transmitted via WRMI on 7570 khz & received in Memphis on Tecsun PL-660. As you can hear, it came in very well.
Reception reports from the east coast of the US, all the way to west coast were most positive. It’s amazing how well WRMI covers the continent.
Speaking of WRMI, we would like to extend a big thanks to Jeff White for extending the Shindig air time–what a great fellow you are, Jeff!
Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, David Iurescia, who relays this translated message from Radio Taiwan International:
