This blog is intended to encourage and inform people like me, who have no background in electronics or technology of any kind, but want to dabble their toes in the shallow end of the Ham Radio Hobby, starting with SWL (Short Wave Listening) and perhaps progressing to greater things. As well as reporting my own progress, I hope to include guest posts from experienced Ham Radio hobbyists which will help me and others along our way.

Disclaimer! This blog follows my own journey of discovery, so my technical knowledge is a work in progress. If I make any major bloomers, please feel free to comment (or contact me) and set me right – I’m always happy to learn.
