Fun With Shortwave Radio

Well, so far I've enjoyed having the shortwave radio again.  So much so that I've been sending off reception reports to various stations and countries (as I've commented in previous entries).  This week, I've received two cards, one from Radio Sweden and one from Radio Japan, and an email notice from Radio Nederlands that they've verified my report and will be sending a QSL card in the post.

I am finding that I still love the thrill of picking up some station in central Africa or southeastern Asia, and moreso receiving the cards back.  Like my postcard collection, they're a lovely slice of being able to see various cultures and what they view as beauty.  For a so-called 'dying' hobby, it certainly seems to be thriving well enough in my mind.
