Radio geek

Photobucket I have a serious radio fetish. When I was little I used to stay up late and listen to AM radio and the old crystal-controlled Bearcat III scanner. It seemed like magic that people could talk way over there and you could here them over here. How strange and wonderful... I still get the same feeling listening to BBC on the shortwave rig.
