[HCDX] WRTH 2001 updates
My updates for Denmark, Faroe Isl. and Greenland in the radio section of the new WRTH 2001 were all included - so it's not old stuff all of it :-)
But don't believe the TV section for these countries. My updates here were not included. Not this year nor last year or ... so very old info here, I'm afraid.
Another thing; Isn't it way out that the majority of the WRTH Receiver Review section is taken up by SCANNERS. What interest would a short wave listener, a DX'er or a broadcaster (who are the readers of WRTH) have in scanners!! The only "normal" short wave receivers tested are Roberts R991 and a Grundig Satellit 800. Also a tranceiver (sic) called Yaesu FT-840 is tested; dont think WRTH is read by many radio amateurs. Hmmm
