Incredible Radio Tales

Richard Dillman, who is the driving force behind the Maritime Radio Historical Society (MRHS) has produced a show on KWMR called “Incredible Radio Tales.”  This is a show that talks about the the various sounds heard on the radio, both natural and man made.  Many of the shortwave frequencies are used for “utility” uses.

He does a great job explaining things like Skyking, numbers stations and so forth.  It is a great show, I can imagine this story being told on Halloween.

You can listen to the first episode here, its about an hour long:

This is a great example of local radio doing local things. I have no idea if the other episodes are going to be put up on line.

~Universal Declaration Of Human Rights, Article 19 was discovered, and not invented, and that these frequencies and principles were always in existence long before man was aware of them. Therefore, no one owns them. They are there as free as sunlight, which is a higher frequency form of the same energy.
