Does not bother me.  The fewer loud signals from doorstep transmitters
I have clogging up my airwaves, the better to hear the faint DX.  BBC
is available from so many outlets now that I can forego them
broadcasting at my house from Sackville or Greenville or some such
place :-)

HF Broadcast is dead. I get 2 BBCWS audio streams at the touch of a
button on a WiFi radio about the same footprint of an ICF-SW12. The only
people who listen to HFBC in Region 2 are end-timers, survivalists and
other antisocial types.

Caribbean English WTF? Good riddance! I can't feature Jamaicans
listening to scratchy shortwave broadcasts so some snooty Englishman can
talk down to them in Pidgin English.

Each area of the Carribean has developed it's own dialect of English .
None of them are classified as pidgin,absolutely not . And BBC-WS
always had a strong presence on AM and FM locally until recently, not
exactly sure what is happening at the present time .

Ya think? The only reason I ever listened was for the content (there are
rarer catches than 500,000 KW Radio Moscow.) Now that the content is
available by other means, I don't have to tie up a $2,000 radio to
listen to the news.

I first heard about the Chilean earthquake last year on Vatican Radio,
from the Vatican.

I suspect I heard it on the BBC or saw it on a Chyron somewhere. The
Vatican gives me the creeps. They are very dark.
