By show of hands, who owns a shortwave radio?
OP: November 23, 2020, 01:02:26 PM
It came up in another thread that we need a contingency for communication in the unlikely event of an internet shutdown. Ham radio is the only non-digital means of communication available to all with the appropriate gear, and therefore ideal.
