Q. Are shortwave radios expensive?
A. They certainly don't have to be! Although you can spend hundreds, even thousands, of dollars on shortwave equipment, it is possible to get shortwave listening for under $100. In the past few years, several manufacturers have introduced low-priced pocket portables that can give you a taste of international shortwave listening for around $30.00 to $50.00.
