You have to hand it to Alex Jones.

It is pretty cool.

Yes, but their frequencies move around like alot of shortwave channels.

BTW, I just got one too.

It is so cool.

Yes but I HATE shortwave!  You can't get Alex Jones in half the time because some Cuban channel's 5 by 5 and you have to fiddle with the fine tune knob... still don't get him in half the time.  No I don't have home internet...

I've been thinking about getting a shortwave radio, but I'm not sure how well I will be able to pick up 12.160MHz, 5.070MHz, or 3.215MHz in Zanesville,Ohio?

You will be able to pick up the signal.

If New York City can pick up the signal from Tennessee which is were the Shortwave Signal comes from.

Then, you can pick it up way better.

Hey Guns, I've been thinking of getting a SW Radio as well.  Is there a certain brand you suggest?  Or a website with good deals?  I'd like to get a handheld one...

I'm sorry. I can't really help you on Shortwave Radios, because I am really new to Shortwave Radio too.

I just brought my first Shortwave Receiver. It is a handheld Kaito FM/AM/Shortwave Radio.

All I can suggest is look on Amazon and read the best comments dealing with Handheld Shortwave Radios.

It is always cool to have a shortwave radio. You have world news all the time.

The Infowars Store sells shortwave radios (http://infowars-shop.stores.yahoo.net/shra.html).

But, from your nickname, I guess that, like me, you're not in the US, so you can't buy one from there. But what you can do is to check out the models they have and look for a place where they sell them in the UK. (If it's to listen to "The Alex Jones Show" that we want, I guess we can trust Alex's or his crew's judgement on this.)

I've already started my quest for an old shortwave radio that might be around. And if I can't find a good working one, I'll look for some online or local shop that sells a model sold at the Infowars Store.

I recommend everyone to get one as well. It's a good idea to have a backup in case something does happen to the Internet.

I bought a Grundig from Radio Shack...it's servicable but not too great for picking up anything faint. I used to own a Sony ICF-2010 which was the top of the line portable and worth the 400 bucks they go for on eBay now. For the sake of survivalist trends, you migfht want a hand-crank CC Radio which isn't expensive.

My question is that shortwave radio is it just the areas radio I get or you can get some stations in the states?

In my experience, a shortwave radio by itself is not enough.  An antenna is essential.  One simple and inexpensive way to considerably improve reception –and hear more stations- is known as the “longwire” (Google search recommended).  Whenever I can, I extend 50 ft. of speaker wire out my window, in a north/south direction, and attach it to the antenna input jack on the back of my portable Grundig. Evidently, according to a youtube video I once saw, another good technique is to use a wire helical spring (or "Slinkey").  Unless there is atmospheric disturbance, which is always a factor with shortwave, once I’ve extended the longwire, my reception is improved and I can usually hear those informative and often inspiring Alex Jonesian rants loudly and for the most part clearly.

I used to live in Hamilton, Ontario, which isn't too far from
Buffalo, NY.

I could reliably hear Alex from Hamilton, though the quality
varied from day to day.  A modest 20 foot length of wire
plugged into my Gundig receiver definitely helped.  Outdoor
reception was better.

IMPORTANT:  Shortwave bounces back and forth between
the surface and the ionosphere.  This is called "skip."
Some places fairly close to a transmitter may not hear the
broadcast because of skip, so it is hard to guarantee what
any given location will experience in terms of reception.

I'd recommend everyone get shortwave sets in case the
world suddenly comes unglued, and all you can get locally
is government propaganda by the "emergency" channels.

A shortwave set is an important preparedness device.  Having
a good quality CB walkie talkie, ideally with the rubber duckie
style antenna and importantly, an external power jack, is also
extremely wise to have.  That way, you can hear what is
going on near you in case of a world wide catastrophe.

A business/emergency channel scanner is excellent too.  Today,
more and more police departments are converting to digital
signals and I'm not sure if digital scanners are available.  I know
in some areas, it is illegal to decode and listen to digital signals
so that has to be kept in mind, as in, if you do it, don't tell
anyone you're doing that.

As to a source for radio gear, I'd recommend looking for outfits
which carry amateur radio equipment.  Here in Canada, a good
one is:

http://www.radioworld.ca

I'm sure there are others of the same type in the U.S.  Google
"amateur radio equipment"

These places tend to carry the full range of gear, not just ham
radio equipment.

A book which Patriot broadcaster John Moore gives top marks
is at this page:

http://www.thelibertyman.com/esc.php

John is an amateur radio operator, private detective, former
Green Beret soldier, and his recommendations are worth paying
attention to.

Oops - I forgot to mention, regarding my radio post above,
a couple of important things regarding buying radios for
world crisis conditions:

1.  Naturally, batteries are important.  Radio Shack here
    in Canada right now is really trying to encourage the
    purchase of large quantities of AA or AAA cells for
    very low prices.  For example, packs of 48 of either
    size for $15 CDN which is about $12 US.

2.  A solar cell power source is important.  Lots around,
    and Ramsey has a nifty one:

    http://www.ramseyelectronics.com/cgi-bin/commerce.exe?
    preadd=action&key=SOL5N
 
   (Copy and paste both link sections carefully.)

    A variety of power adapters and a cheap voltmeter
    to varify DC POLARITY should be part of a solar supply
    kit.  A separate BATTERY CHECKER is advisable
    because a battery checker is different from a volt
    meter.  A battery checker has resistor loads on each
    range to test batteries under load.  There are cheap
    ones available.

3.  HEADPHONES, a couple sets at least, which fit and
    work with all of your radio gear are extremely
    important.  In a crisis, you may want to hear what's
    on the radio without alerting others near you that
    you are there!

4.  It is worth the effort to be sure you have adapter
    cables which have alligator clips (colour coded so
    you know which is positive, which is negative) so
    you can power your radios from external batteries,
    and your solar panel.

    If you aren't technically inclined, seek the help of
    a local amateur radio operator in getting such
    adapter cables made up.  LABEL EACH ADAPTER
    CABLE WITH THE NAME OF THE RADIO IT IS TO
    BE USED WITH.  It's very easy to forget.

    WARNING:  Many radios will work at voltage levels
    below their rated voltage, but connecting to a
    higher voltage can damage or ruin your radio.  A
    voltmeter should be used if you're not sure.

5.  I recommend having at least two six volt gel cell
    (sealed lead acid) batteries on hand to power
    your radio for extended periods in an emergency.
    These are common for alarm systems and emer-
    gency lights, and are usually available locally from
    a battery distributor.  6 volt, 5 amp hour is a good
    size - not too large to lug around.

    You'll need a charger too.  You'll need some
    alligator clip leads to interconnect the batteries
    for 12 volt applications.
 
    Run a 9 volt radio on 6 volts.

    I don't recommend using a 6 volt battery to power
    a 4.5 volt radio like the cheap, popular crank
    radios, FR200 by Grundig.  You can always purchase
    battery holders from Radio Shack and make up an
    external pack for 3 volt or 4.5 volt radios, D-cells,
    with the help of a local ham radio operator.

    Again - be sure your positive leads are colour
    coded (red is normally positive.)  Reversing the
    polarity can damage/ruin radios.

    The pair of 6 volt gel cells can also be charged
    with the solar panel.

One of the things I was gonna email the Infowars crew about today was the lack of this being easily accessable on the Infowars website.  I looked all over and couldn't find squat... just the freq of how to listen in Austin, and a bunch of internet streaming/podcast links.  I finally went to GCNLive.com and found the affiliate list here -> http://www.gcnlive.com/programs/alexJones/affiliateList.pdf [Browser-friendly link]
