That book brings back memories. I couldn’t wait for the World Radio TV Handbook (WRTH) to come out every year.

Pre-internet, I spent a lot of hours dx'ing with my Grundig Satellit 700 portable receiver.

Sony ICF-2010 was getting the best ratings for a portable at the time but I was partial to Grundig.

I remember Amazon’s old radio commercials where they would simulate calling a place asking if it was big enough to hold all their books. I used to think they were funny; but it turns out that with their enormous inventory today, they weren’t kidding.

I remember both of those...along with tuning into the 6240 and 7415 bandwidths on weekends to listen to pirate radio stations on my Realistic DX-440.
