Itís often asked who exactly is to blame for pushing PLT onto our market?

Well, everything points to Europe.

Why else would our regulator when faced with a flood of non compliant electronic devices fail to take action to stop it at source?

 

There are those who would have us believe that short wave radio is dead and there is nothing there to hear anymore!

This is a total lie!

 

Itís as interesting as ever.

 

To prove this I present just two evenings short wave radio logs, you be the judge is shortwave radio dead?

 

Of course not, what seems to be happening is that someone or some body is deliberately trying to undermine our human rights to receive information freely and without regulation. (And it is our human right)

Shortwave radio does this very well! So are we being transformed into a censored state?

 

If you have internet radio, that can be controlled very easily!

Sorted by frequency.

 

So the EU commission that recently told one of my MEPs that the shortwave spectrum is best used by PLT was either making a gross error or there is something more sinister about all this!

 

How better to jam shortwave radio than have a jamming device in every house!

 

Shortwave radio is your way to tune into the world and hear what is being said and make your own mind up.

Currently it crossed boarders and gets to the public of any country.

No other medium offers this facility.

 

If you value your freedom then shortwave radio is worth saving and fighting for.
