    Gents where and when can one listen to weather reports on SHORT WAVE RADIO

    I was under the impression that BBC had a weather report on short wave on the hour all over the world - a sort of global weather report - but cant find it

    I think that some of the Jester guys could listen to a regular weather station on short wave radio

    Any ideas ???

    Thanks - excellent link with a zillion other links to a mine field of info :cool:

    I walked into a little country store (Babsfontein) the other day to buy a coke and saw this ten dollar cheapy radio on the top shelf covered in dust - the box had never been opened ! Put batteries in and viola I had BBC on shortwave! **** I haven't listened to shortwave since I was a kid many many moons ago. Well now I got FM - MW - and 9 shortwave channels. As a broadband internet junkie I am shocked at how much shortwave transmissions are around - flippen fantastic

    I will post the links to the radio stations and times as I come across them

    as you can see I modified the knob :D :D :D (marinised it) works like a bomb

    also visible is my answer to working in a cold garage
    sherry to warm the cockles of the heart
    lets go and build a boat :D :D :D
