Thanko USB Radio tunes in horse races, presumably Tokyo


Thanko, everyone’s favorite crapvendor, is offering a short wave/AM/FM radio that plugs right into your PC for maximum shortwaving experience. I’m not quite sure who’s on short wave anymore but I’m sure there’s someone out there endlessly repeating numbers and calling for help from a desert island.

Incidentally, does anyone remember that short wave service that sent data over the radio waves and into your computer? What was that called? That was pretty cool.

The radio is $44 if you’re interested. You can get it here.
