Hello and welcome back.... If your like me, I love listening to Shortwave Radio, There's a real thrill in narrowing down a frequency half a world away and hearing as it happens.

A good setup is a must with a Longwire Antenna strung across your backyard.

My setup is a Icom IC-PCR1000 computer controlled radio using a Mobile One SCATX vertical antenna.
The antenna is rated for 25mhz - 1300mhz but for shortwave, it picks up really well, which surprised me.

With the current situation of war in different country's, The use of air, sea and ground forces all require communication. Most use Shortwave because of coverage... Many tanks (see below) have these huge antennas on them.. That's for Shortwave mostly around 5-25mhz and using Upper Sideband.
