Read ✓ Broadcasting on the Short Waves, 1945 to Today By Jerome S Berg – Tactical-player.co.uk
Mine of information and nostalgia If only short wave listening was still like this. There are not too many books documenting shortwave radio broadcasting, listening and history So that Mr Berg wrote three books on the subject is amazing Like the other two in this series, Broadcasting on the Short Waves is comprehensive and well written and will be engrossing to anyone who enjoys the subject matter. While the book is not formatted as such, it is essentially a list of all the stations broacasting, sorted by year of first broadcast Many photos of QSL cards A tremendous amount of data, but I was hoping for commentary, so it forfeited one star. This book is ninety nine percent text but offers some of the best information on shortwave broadcast radio available anywhere It tells of radio as many of us knew it in the early years and describes how radio was years ago Well worth buying and reading and chocked full of information Excellent offering.
