Video: “The Glory Days of Shortwave Radio”

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Adi, who writes:

Hi Thomas, this video just popped for me on YouTube. I searched the SWLing Post and didn’t find it, it’s not new so maybe you missed it.

Thank you, Adi. I’m almost positive I’ve posted this one before–but if I have it’s been so long it should be re-posted! A wonderful nostalgia trip! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for posting this. Many years ago there was a set of LP records of interval signals and announcements which someone transcribed to MP3 files and made available on line. I down loaded them but lost them in a crash. Does anyone have a copy?

      I never had it, but Hallicrafters issued a record, maybe just a 45, of spunds from shortwave. More like a promotional item. They may have included it as a bonus when buying a receiver.
