I believe that 1983 was probably one of the best years for listening to shortwave. All kinds of stations were popping up between 3 and 30 MHz on the radio dial.

Remember that this research was based purely on what had been monitored off the air. There was no Wikipedia. And many wirelesses still got hot!
