walking down 6th Avenue,
mindin' my business,
watching the unfolding diorama,
Kids with more metal than Skin in their ears
Middle aged women on Scooters
Lunch hour crowds
Stopped at a dark doorway on NE corner of 11th st...
- Magazine Store !
- So, I wandered inside,
seeing the horribly battered counter,
& vast, dark, magazine cluttered space
Poked around a bit,
- *& Yes,
right where it should be
Was a slot full of " Monitoring times"
_ So I buy one
go up to the lady running the store,
Maybe a tad under 70.
Been there,
done that.
" Do other people come in here & buy this Magazine" Said I
" Well, said she
" It doesn't sell like the New Yorker, but we sell a few"

So, even in the MOST UNlikely places
There are shortwave freaks
So
 if your in Downtown NYC
stop by her store & buy a copy

Dan ( Just heading south, towards the " A" train...)

Can you see any long wire antennas strewn across the roof of apartment
buildings?

- Yes, that would be nice...

Or stringing out a Longwire in the trees in Central Park...
