And people wonder where we learned all of our "work- arounds!" heh heh.
We still listened to shortwave in the field but called it "antenna range evaluation." (also made certain that the door to the commo van was locked)

That reminds me of a similar incident while in the Navy I was working in a site and this receiver set was on and it had a monitor scope showing a channel and it was full of RTTY or something this dumb Lt. walks bye and says get that interference off of their. I quickly said yes sir and changed the scope channel to something cleaner. LOL if he only knew.

That's funny because I got my share of Russian, Chinese and Cuban propaganda during those days but it didn't prevent me from getting a top secret clearance to keep a close eye on them when I was stationed in Europe. LOL.
We were always the first to get our radios set up when we were in the field and on one occasion I got bored and decided to tune the shortwave bands just to see what was up. I soon came across the news in English from Radio Moscow. I recognized the accent from years of listening. An officer just happened to walk by and asked what was on the radio. I answered that it was the news from Radio Moscow. Convinced that I was just being a smartass ( I can't imagine why he would think that) he asked again and at that moment we heard the very familiar refrain. "And that was the news from Radio Moscow." He then said "Get that #%@& off that radio. "Yes sir." True story.
I guess the Cold War continues.
