SHORTWAVE RADIO

The Failed Coup in Turkey Shows Why Shortwave Radio is Still Relevant

by John Galt July 17, 2016 21:00 ET There have been many a eulogy presented for the hobby of shortwave radio listening and broadcasters over the past five years so highlighting the statements of the obvious does nothing but fulfill the age old argument that the internet has replaced radio and soon we won’t have any need for AM, FM, or Shortwave because of modern technology. That statement is true, if you wish to live in a world like current day Iran or China is filtered by the government and the…

Are you Really Prepared? I thought I was until…

  by John Galt August 3, 2013 21:00 ET     A long presentation but well worth it, but what does that have to do with preps and yours truly, the author of this website almost committing a fatal sin and destroying a key portion of my survival plans? I ignored my own website and it almost cost myself and more importantly, my family. What did I ignore one might ask; well this: For all of my preparing, for the potential for an economic disaster, surviving in a situation similar to…


The Decline of Shortwave Radio means the Spread of World Conflict

  by John Galt July 7, 2013 22:00 ET As many of my long time listeners of my old shows and readers of these pages realize, I am a huge fan of the hobbies of shortwave radio listening  and DXing, as well as amateur radio operations. I fear however the terminal decline of these hobbies is not due to a lack of interest but a rise in government censorship which now has the means and ability to restrict the flow of information between countries and determine exactly what information shall be…


Attention Carry Concealed Licensees, Ham Radio Operators, and Precious Metals Owners: Registration is Confiscation

To make matters worse, the pointing at the Canadian example does nothing to impede the thought process of cowardly Republicans defending the idea because the thought of obtaining more financial support far supersedes their oath of office and to…


Guerrilla Radio Listening and Broadcasting

  by John Galt October 1, 2012 19:00 ET   What is Guerrilla Radio?   The background picture for this webpage is an illustration from an archive of historical pictures of the French Resistance during World War II. Why is this pertinent to the show last Friday?   It is time for a dose of reality for those souls who think that we will not endure the horrors of those inhabitants under Nazi German rule or worse, the people trapped behind the Iron Curtain of Communist dictatorships around the world. Why…


Prepetorial #4: “I never knew…..”

By John Galt November 12, 2007 It was a typically boring Saturday afternoon in suburbia. It did not seem like just one year ago, the grocery stores and malls had been bombed across America by the Arabs, but “whatever” I thought as I settled down to another fine afternoon of college football. The usual highway checkpoint warnings were scrolling across the bottom of the screen but I did not care as I was in the safety of Mackinaw, IL, where our sheriff would have no part of the nonsense the big…
