is that there is a lot of prepper talk on the short wave of what I can pick up. Everything from government activities, to virus threats and theories of purposeful contamination of society, guns and supplies and political grief. I wish I got better signal indoors but my place is packed with lots of concrete. The little ATS-505 is not bad though and I like it's features. A radio that picks up SW and SSB should be a prep for everyone I think. I'm pretty sure, when shtf though, I'm going to have to climb up on the roof with a rifle for security at the same time, hook up the long antenna to a tree and listen to find out what's going on while doing security watch.

Oh I could use one no doubt, but actually having the space to set it up right now is the problem. The little wire antenna will have to do for now and of course all I have is the little Sangean with it's mini plug to plug it into.
Do you have any tall trees on your property? I was thinking you could do a triangle over a tree and it would hide the antenna and give you the range you need.
