Shortwave HF VHF UHF Utilities Monitoring Page
This page is dedicated to the shortwave & scanner listening hobby. I became involved in listening to shortwave as a kid in Junior Highschool. That exposure to shortwave radio listening made a real impact in my life. At one time I had an NRD-525 shortwave radio and was decoding RTTY news services on a AIR-1 card through my VIC-20. I also had a Pro-2005 Scanner with the ablility to listen to Military Air traffic in the 225.000 - 400.000 MHz range frequencies. I have recently started getting back into the hobby, I had left the hobbie for computers.
