An experiment in shortwave radio. Streaming a shortwave radio net with stations across the US. This is a tool being developed to support disaster response when commercial communications fail for any reason.

On shortwave, we depend on bouncing signals from the ionosphere, which is constantly changing, depending on time of day and what the sun is doing. There is a lot of static and sometimes signals from other services. There are times when you will hear one station talking to another that cannot be heard.
