I am hoping to get in touch with a ham operator for advice. Back in the days of my youth, there was a “portable” radio called the transoceanic that had a variety of short wave frequency ranges that would pick up the BBC in various countries, as well as Voice of America and private radio operators. Coupled with a world map, it was a great way to learn geography.
I would like to pick up a modern version of the transoceanic for my grand son. But I have no name brand recognition in this area. I am assuming that a ham receiver would have the necessary frequency ranges. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
