1945 to Today
By Jerome S. Berg.
The heart of the book, “Shortwave Year-by-Year” is a detailed account of the shortwave bands in each year from 1945 to the present. It reviews what American listeners were hearing on the international and domestic shortwave bands, describes the arrivals and departures of stations, and recounts important shortwave events. It also introduces readers to the several categories of broadcasters—international, domestic, religious, clandestine and pirate—and to private shortwave broadcasting in the United States. It explains the impact of relay stations, frequency management, and jamming, and describes promising shortwave technologies. It also addresses the considerable changes in, and challenges to, shortwave broadcasting since the end of the Cold War. The book is richly illustrated and indexed, and features extensive notes to facilitate further reading or research. ©2008 McFarland Publishing. Hard cover 488 pages. List price $65.00.
