subdued MW broadcast band ... ultimately discovering only
one station available for logging? You know the one. Yep,
that frightening government station with the funny name, simulcasting on 640 and 1240 kHz.
For March 2021, a film produced by the Office of Civil Defense and Mobilization
and Norwood Studios showing how schools can prepare for a nuclear attack from Russia.
