I had a great time last night listening to the Short Wave radio. I will admit I stayed up way longer then I should have. At about 1am this morning I started to pick up The Voice of America for Africa. It is always fun to tune around the Short Wave bands to see what you can pick up. I also was picking up some station that was playing Blue Grass music. I also found a station with some nutty right-wing nut jobs, they were so far to the right they made me look like an ultra-lib 😉 and if you know me, you know I am very conservative. Also I had my ham radio on (VHF) and I heard some people talk about how the HF bands were open, first one question if you like HF why are you on VHF talking about how great that they are open get on HF and have fun, and what I heard only confirmed what I was hearing last night on the Short Wave Radio bands, that the SW or HF (about the same area on the RF spectrum from about 1Mhz to 50Mhz) are wide open, and it is going to be great fun, for both Short Wave Radio listeners (me) and the HF Ham Radio Operators.
