Well, the war has just started. I've spent the evening combing the short wave bands to see what can be picked up with a small portable with the built in telescopic antenna (Radio Shack DX-402). Here's what the last 5 hours produced. This is not intended to be a detailed frequency/schedule guide--check with Monitoring Times or Pop Com for more info. It is intended to show how easy it is to pick up 25 countries in one day with a simple receiver and built in antenna. As the war heats up, these stations can provide a different slant on the news, or even details that NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX & CNN "overlooked".

ENJOY!!!!!
