If you’ve emailed me in the past two weeks there’s a good chance you haven’t received a response; my apologies.
The reason is that I’ve been travelling through DC, Philadelphia, and surrounding areas, visiting friends and colleagues, as well as attending (and presenting at) the 29th annual Winter SWL Fest. It’s been a fantastic trip and, fortunately, inclement weather happened on days I didn’t need to drive in crazy traffic–about all you can ask for in the northeastern US in the middle of winter.
Late night listening at David Goren’s Shortwave Shindig
But while travelling I had very little time to keep up with email and tips from readers, as is so often the case when one is on the road. Now that I’m back at home base, nearly a hundred emails from Post readers beg responses–so if you haven’t heard from me yet, this is why. As I catch up on my backlog of email, thanks, readers, for your patience and understanding.
But first, let’s see what’s on the shortwave bands this evening…
Mark Fahey hosts his forum, “Monitoring Dusty War Zones and Tropical Paradises: On Being a Broadcast Anthropologist” at the 2015 Winter SWL Fest.
Richard Cuff and John Figliozzi have just announced the dates for the 2016 Winter SWL Fest–it will be held on February 19th and 20th, 2016. I encourage you to save these dates and plan to attend!
