It's no wonder the hobby is on the decline...

I was shocked upon my return to casual SWL'ing last year, with the
conspicuous absence on the airwaves of the once-stalwart VOA, BBC, and

One can only take-in so many religious surmons, and left-wing / right-wing
political rants. What complete & utter garbage! If the airwaves were like
they are now, only some 31 years ago, I seriously doubt that I would have
bothered to tune the bands myself back then.
