Does anyone still listen to shortwave broadcasts? When was the last time you actually sat and listened to a transmission by a national broadcaster, a private one, a faith-based one, or other? I am guilty as charged. Last time I actually sat and listened to a broadcast was about ten years ago.

I still do at times.  Usually when camping sitting at the campfire, I'll tune/scan through SW bands and listen to a variety of stuff.

It was nice to wake up to this comment. One of my fondest memories growing up in the Canadian bush was sitting by the campfire with my dad smoking his pipe while listening to the CBC’s evening news broadcast.
