My Dad has always been into radios, especially short wave and morse code. I remember an old short wave set he had that we used to listen to with a pair of Bakelite earphones at night. We heard radio hams, foreign stations ( speaking English) especially from Russia, and American Football games. I got into CB radio when you could ( illegally) buy and use American sets and spoke to people all over the world when conditions were right, but never bothered when it was legalised. I've had quite a few wide band and shortwave sets and always been interested in listening to air band, both civil and military. Now, I have a few wide band receivers and air band scanners with a new shortwave receiver on its way this week. Anybody else out there as sad as me?
