Q: Does anyone use a radio to listen to International radio stations?

I was thinking of buying a TECSON BCL 3000 short wave radion to listen to radio Australia and the BBC, does anyone know if you can? or are they blocked? Just another toy to have!!

I am sure any kind of political radio station is blocked. Other radio stations like the BBC that often deal with sensitive issues will probably be blocked also. If you manage to receive any English radio stations that are not just some Chinese with bad English trying to brainwash, PM me.

Why cant you use the internet and get podcasts of radio stations? I havn't tried but bat22 suggests it will work. Does the great firewall block such things and if that is the case is it just then a matter to get a VPN? That way you dont need to go to the expense of buying a radio.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
