  1. Bill, I cannot find the kits on ebay you mentioned. Not in completed or current listings. A Google search did not show them either.

  3. Bill,

    I sometimes listen to Soldersmoke at work when nobody is around, I heard you talking in this week's edition about people wandering around listening to soccer (isn't it football over there?) on their radios so having a shortwave radio with the antenna sticking up is no big deal. Just curious, do you find people in Europe listening to shortwave more than in the US? When I was a kid there used to be people periodically who had shortwave receivers but I don't know anybody who does it now that isn't a ham (and most hams don't). Is it more prevalent there?

    Keep up the good work!

    PS Don't give up on the SDR radios, I've built a couple and am having a ball with it, go to groups.yahoo.com and search for softrock40.
