|What is shortwave radio?
A shortwave radio gets stations from places far away from where you live and are "hidden" in between the standard AM and FM band on frequencies from about 3 Mhz to 30 Mhz. Shortwave radio signals are capable of traveling long distances, unlike AM and FM stations which usually can only be heard for about 50 - 75 miles from the broadcasting station, depending on your antenna. Shortwave radio signals are designed to skip around the world and bounce in the atmosphere, meaning they can be heard far away. You can listen to news from around the world, propaganda, music, religious broadcasts, sporting events, etc. In short just about anything. Very handy when you are camping in the middle of nowhere! many of our shortwave radios are also solar radios and/or windup radios.
