wbcq says shortwave isn't dead

Happy October!

Starting around 0000 UTC on 30 September 2006, I briefly listened to WBCQ on 7415 khz. The signal strength was average, but I heard a ton of local interference.

Just after talking about how his transmitters were somewhat in disrepair, Allan Weiner was mocking the belief that shortwave is dead or dying. "If you think shortwave is dying, try finding a frequency!" WBCQ wants to move from 18910 khz down to a frequency perhaps in the 15 mhz range, but they're having trouble finding one that's available for a long block of time.
