Worldwide on Shortwave radio, streaming and satellite
Marconi’s wireless. Shrouded then as now, in mystery. Signals traveling around the globe, via the reflective power of the ionosphere. Programming in hundreds of tongues beamed to the far corners of the earth twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. Signals so small they are measured in microvolts. So powerful they have affected the course of history and shaped the minds of men and women ever since Marconi’s marvelous invention.
French aviator and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote: The central struggle of men has ever been to understand one another, to join together for the common weal. On another occasion, he expanded on this belief: Transport of the mails, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures – in this century as in others our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together.
A parchment on my wall from Radio Vaticana carries similar words: All over the world radio communications promote good will and understanding among people. We live in a global village that is totally dependent upon our ability to live and communicate with each other. It has always been my intention to reach forth through shortwave radio with these ideals in mind, while continuing to search for those places or stations I haven’t yet logged.
My listening experience on the shortwaves has brought me in contact with countless peoples of this diverse planet, from Greenland to Spanish Sahara, Antarctica to Tahiti.
