What does Shortwave Radio Mean to Me?

Shortwave Radio: Tune Into The World

What does Shortwave mean to Chris Freitas? Simply, the answer to that question is that it is a means of bringing the world to your hands. Shortwave radio is still home to thousands of voices on the airwaves. There are international broadcasters from various countries, music from different cultures, pirate stations, spy signals (if one can interpret them), hams talking to each other hundreds or even thousands of miles away, and other sounds. No other medium has such variety of content.

People nowadays use social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Unaware to most people, shortwave radio is one of the first types of social media. Hams from many different regions and countries constantly talk to each other, share experiences, talk about life in their towns, and just talk nonsense. Unlike Facebook, these conversations are much more engaging and are not subject to censorship.

Shortwave also means to me as a future career. In November 1997, I was first exposed to shortwave by reading an article in Boy’s Life magazine titled “Tune into the world.” After reading the article and further research at the local library, I realized that the multiband radio I once had included shortwave radio. And so began my shortwave adventure and I listened to many stations like the BBC, Deustche Welle, Radio Taipei International, HCJB, Radio Canada International, and more. Over the years, I yearned to be a broadcaster to bring the same high-quality content I once heard on the radio to listeners around the world.
