Shortwave radio remains one of the key electronic media for reaching the maximum number of potential listeners in Europe. Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific, and certain regions in the Americas. This is proved by the fact that the worlds biggest international broadcast organizations continue their activities via Shortwave, and are investing heavily in new studio and transmission facilities. In recent history, The Gulf and the most recent Iraq War demonstrated once again and most impressively how important a telecommunications tool shortwave is in reaching a vast audience using inexpensive but highly powerful modern receivers that can be put in a suitcase or pocket. Shortwave is everywhere. It is the worlds most mobile medium. Ironically, it was the propaganda machine of Nazi Germany that recognized the power of Shortwave and perfected its use in the Second World War.
Today, Shortwave is one of the greatest weapons in the fight for morality.
