    Used to listen quite a bit, but haven't in a few years.
    My Dad was a HAM, so I grew up with SW in the background from about 10 till I left home at about 23.
    I have had a small SW radio for several years & do scan the frequencies occasionally.
    Lots of interesting stuff tho', if one takes the time (patience, patience) to really tune & listen

    I used to listen quite a bit when I was an amateur radio operator (1970s). But with the internet nowadays shortwave radio seems a bit superfluous.
