In my journey through the rec.radio.shortwave usenet newsgroup, I found a gem titled "Keepers: shortwave radios that last". In addition to being informative, it is quite funny! Here's a quote from the end of the post by VE3IUT:
"My wife has arrived and is demanding to know why I am wasting my time on this thing when there are 3749 chores to do and her mother was right: I am a good for nothing lazy layabout bum and she should have married Raoul who became a lawyer AND a doctor"
A few months ago, I posted an article called multiple radios: making the case, although it was not nearly as funny.
