Colin, just imagine a young child receiving a SW portable and tuning across the bands hears virtually nothing. Any chance of snagging a young enthusiast has just gone down the drain! I still recall my first "real" receiver....a 12 band portable, which cost me the princely sum of $32 back in the late 60s. You know what the first SW station I heard from Toronto? It was the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation! Well, I was immediately hooked, and used that same receiver for years to listen to Radio Australia's Mailbag every Saturday morning, and then Radio Tashkent's English program. Sigh!!!! Those were the days. I feel sorry for the upcoming generation having to fight more and more with QRM, and fewer and fewer stations to monitor.........Walt Salmaniw, Victoria, BC
