" Thus shortwave radio can be used for very long distance communication, in contrast to radio waves of higher frequency which travel in straight lines..."

Changed a couple of words and voila, a mess of a sentence. A great example of professional reporting today.

"Shortwave radio bands are able travel long distances using very high frequencies, unlike traditional radio waves that need to travel in straight lines. "

Wow, they really screwed that up. Couldn't they have just referenced the Wikipedia article?

Reminds of a time when I heard the announcer on a TV station news program talking about a proposed high-voltage power line interchanging "high voltage" with "high frequency" a few times in the space of three minutes. It made me cringe.

It also reminds me of the times in the 1980s when the launches of the US Space Shuttle would be delayed by electrical problems, which would almost always be described in US TV news as "a short circuit". It didn't matter what the electrical problem was, it might have been a software issue or a defective sensor, but it was always described as "a short circuit." I'm fairly certain that NASA paid a lot of attention to wiring inside the rocket and you can imagine that if a NASA rocket had an actual short circuit, there would have been hell to pay. So describing everything as a short circuit was ridiculous to me.

Coming back around to the original topic - it's fair to say that I would not go to CNN Business for a proper description of electromagnetic wave propogation. It's also fair to say that I would not go to Scientific American for a description of the intricacies of the the bond market. So there's that.

. This push to cut meat consumption is being pushed by those with ties to the fake meat companies.

Ummm.

Well, those folks may be financially interested, it's not like they are the only ones advocating for it. There are plenty of people with no expectation of financial gain pointing out the issues. Jim's reference is a starting point.

KaySeeks, even if it's R. Rainbow again, I will leave that as a new subject. Much clearer like that.

Pas de problème. I just realized that they have been reported twice on two frequencies already today. Yes, it could be confusing.

Rainbow seems to have returned, I think. Pretty sure that I heard the familiar female announcer's voice at one point.
SINPO 34333 on an SDR in Norway at 1700 UTC.

ID, I think, in English at 1720 but I have some Internet connection issues today and my feed drops every 10 seconds Fixed
1722 - Greetings to listeners. "May you have decent signals."
1732 - Clear ID
1739 - "Owner of a Lonely Heart"
1741 - The Clash, "Should I Stay or Should I Go". Signal is fading down and becoming noisier in Norway.
1745 - Nirvana
1749 - I must go do some other things. Cheers!

to steer listeners in the direction of breaking the law, which I had said, does not mean asking people to break the law. Let's be precise, shall we?

Hi Jock. Unintentionally expanding upon what Chris wrote, I'm going to be argumentative - just for some Sunday entertainment here - and note the irony that you are worried about a radio broadcaster that is breaking the law just by its mode of operation advocating for listeners to to break the law by sending some cash in the post. I realize that the scale of the crimes are somewhat different as is who performs them, but I couldn't let that pass.

"Shortwave radio bands are able travel long distances using very high frequencies, unlike traditional radio waves that need to travel in straight lines. "

Possibly the worst explanation I have ever read.

I checked if it was a 3rd harmonic - should be 1806,3 kHz fundamental, but nothing heard there.

That would be in the 160 meter ham radio band. Seems unlikely.

Email address at 1927 but their microphone audio is so lacking in high frequency that it is too muffled to understand.
