UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN JUNE 2021. PICTURES OF QSL'S BEING POSTED, BUT NOT YET COMPLETE
As I write
this in 2021 there are still many shortwave broadcasters throughout
the world, but not near as many as there were in the mid to late
has and is used for internal broadcasting as well, especially in
larger countries. The CBC previously broadcast a Northern
Service to areas without local transmitters, and as well there were
a few regional shortwave broadcasters. The CBC had shortwave
relays of its domestic stations for the benefit of seafarers, and
private stations operated in Calgary, Halifax and Toronto. I well
recall on my arrival in Halifax listening to CHNS on 960 on the AM
band and hearing the station ID, "CHNS and shortwave CHNX"
Here are my shortwave QSL's. Back in the Cold War I received cards from China, the USSR, and other communist countries, and I am sure that was a sensation at our local small-town post office! As with other radio services, I look at my small collection and wish I had done a lot more. Note on the Swiss card they are pointing out that they mentioned me by name on one of their broadcasts. I missed hearing it, but how cool is that!!
These QSL's are in no particular order
