Back in the day short wave radio (1.6 -30 Mhz).had lots of interesting things. Broadcasts in English and a bunch of other languages. From news ,propaganda, number stations , and station jammer s. Number stations are thought to be messages for spies and are still being used. I will include cb radio hear . (27Mhz) with cell phones, sat tv ,and other tek not much is on short wave radio today. Other than the ham bands.

I have a portable ham radio. Never used it.

My question is: Why did I ever buy it?

At first, I had no idea what you were talking about. Then the light bulb came on.
In 1974-1975 I bought a sports car. Lots of fun till it did not work any more. I rolled it to an old girlfriend's house where I was able to get some twine. I used the twine to hold together the distributor cap. What happened was revving the engine to about 7200 RPMS when the distributor cap split in to two pieces.

I finally changed the cap, I believe, 4-6 months later.

Points are simple and straight forward, but still a pain. On ham radio you can listen to any freq. but you need a license
(USA) to transmit . Or the FCC will come looking for you.
PS except for the cb band that you don't need a license to use.
