Ziners........the one thing I always take is my Grundig
Shortwave/FM World Receiver. These are small powerful radios.
As you may or may not know, Europe is great for shortwave.
Nice to get world news from the BBC and VOA if your hotel
doesn't have CNN. Also European digital FM is in 50khz steps
unlike the 200khz steps here in the US. If you have an analog
dial type, no problem. On FM you can always get classical
music. I like to listen to the local stations to get the gist of the
language. Feel so European.......
