I’ve mentioned many times before what a joy it is to curate the Shortwave Radio Audio Archive (SRAA). Sometimes I’m sent recordings that evoke a flood of memories. SRAA contributor, Tom Laskowski, just submitted another such recording.
Tom included the following notes with his Radio RSA – Voice of South Africa recording:
Every Saturday night during the early 1980s [in South Bend, Indiana] I would regularly tune to 9580 kHz at 0200 to listen to Radio RSA (Channel Africa as it is now known) to hear DX Corner, their regular DX program.
This episode from March 14, 1982 was a look at a brand new hot radio, the Sony ICF-2001.
The audio isn’t great but should be listenable. I think this was recorded using my new Realistic DX-302. Enjoy:
Thank you, Tom! I think Radio RSA did an admirable job reviewing the ICF-2001!
