    Hello, I am Hosein from Iran. I have a vague memory of receiving shortwave from Japan in Iran. My grandfather about 50 years ago with a tube radio that had a wooden frame. He picks up a station with a lot of jamming and suddenly shouts, “I got a Japanese radio station.” Then he installed a long wire between two trees of the house and connected a wire to the radio antenna in the middle. From then on, every night he listened to Radio Tokyo in excellent quality. Although my grandfather did not have an academic education, he used to repair all his neighbors’ and friends’ tube radios at home and taught me as well. He died 18 years ago but his old tube radio still lives on in my desk. Sincerely, Hosein from Iran.

    Well, the second line of my previously posted comment was written in Japanese, but when rendered as a comment it is displayed as ???????? – too bad nobody will ever read what I wrote – it was one of my best comments ever!
