Any short-wave folks out there with any input from the Ukraine?

Since our own government and media (same thing really) are silent on the topic, are any DP'ers listening 'over the back fence'?

Can we get any credible reports out of the region? Anything verifiable?

Shortwave Radio. The long and the short of it.

Shortwave radio is listen only.Here is discussion of state of government and shortwave, including sites and replies:

If you are into amatuer radio operation (ham) then I suggest you search the "maritime nets". Their is lot's of activity, lot's of "active frequency" sharing, and with "long distance" check in's, you can "talk" directly with the other DX'ers about things going on in their country.
(you may get involved with Skype chat rooms, very international, and don't need a radio, just access to internet)

MOBILE MARITIME HAM-RADIO NETS
This is a very good and useful selection of Ham-Radio Nets extracted from the listings in the Marine Electrical & Electronics Bible. If you are not a licensed operator, invest in a receiver only and listen in to the nets, the information can be invaluable.

thanks for the links

I think it may be wise to look into shortwave radio as another alternative source. ANyone out there have any recommendations? I'm looking at a Grundig from the shack for under $70. Anyone know if I need to run an antenna up the chimney?

Still researching

No shortwave info, but does this help ...

"Ukraine and World Pneumonic Plague Information
This Blog is strictly about what is going on in the Ukraine and possibly spreading in the area. I have been doing the postings on my blog: Sherriequestioningall blog, but this is an ongoing problem that needs it's own information page. I WILL CONTINUALLY UPDATE WITH INFORMATION AND NEWS AS I FIND IT ON WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE UKRAINE!"

Thanks. I've seen it before and it looks like a good site.

It is chilling that many countries and

their media march in lock-step to keep news from the people of the world.

They deny people information needed for individual decisions to keep them dependent despite government incompetence to make wise decisions. The quickest way to stop their blackouts is to deny them funding from all of us in the productive sector.

People are waking up to the dangers and the trickery, now they need to make the connection between the huge budgets they allow governments and the repression of information and freedom everywhere.

I got a little Kaito KA1102

I got a little Kaito KA1102 about a year back. I was amazed how much I could pick up with it .(Chinese, South American, BBC, Russian, etc.) I am new to shortwave, so if you could recommend some good freq. I sure would appreciate it. I'm in Louisiana.

Rush stations

Rush Stations Louisiana.

Global/short wave. WRNO Shortwave. 15.420 mhz*. 11a-2p. Lafayette. KPEL-FM ...

Alexandria. KSYL. 970. 11a-2p.
Baton Rouge. WJBO. 1150. 11a-2p.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

No one on the short wave anymore?

I thought there were surely some die-hard SW types at the DP...

This video

you linked, Celeste, needs to go viral! I am so po'd right now! Twice I attempted to comment and it's pending approval by frickin youtube! I did 5-star it, favorited it, bookmarked it for further review, and gave all the comments a thumbs-up (which also appears to be pending approval, since my ratings of comments is not showing)...
