No they havent been made in years, but schematics for them online plus alot of nice mods are available. Still have the DX-160, and works great.

Default Re: Short wave radio

Never got into ham radio, but used to listen to shortwave on my old Grundig set. Had a wire strung out of a window that pulled in some signals pretty well. It was easy getting the major stations out of Europe and even Australia, but occasionally when the conditions were right I'd get some stations in Africa and South America. Lately though it seems a lot of stations no longer broadcast to North America; it's probably a lot cheaper just to stream over the Internet.
