Sadly, when you tune across the SW Bands these daysyou don't hear very much.  It seems that the Internet hasreplaced many of those wonderful high-power stationsthat used to fill those airwaves..   -BL

Ah, the good old Woodpecker.....  I was just an SWL when it was in its
prime during the 1980s.  Many a time I cursed it because it interfered
with reception of a certain program or denied me a possible DX catch.

It became as much a legend on the bands as those infamous numbers stations.
