October NKARC Meeting Replay
Club member, Mark Volstad, AI4BJ, took us on a very intriguing and nostalgic journey through the "Golden Age of Shortwave Radio."
Although, in Mark's words, "the Internet has ruined everything," for ShortWave Listeners (SWLs) there are still intersting shortwave
stations to be found on the air. Since most of us already have a general coverage shortwave receiver, try tuning across some of
the shortwave bands to see what you can find. Thanks Mark!
